Lawyer: Imprisoned hunger strikers moved to hospital

Jan. 24, 2013 7:57 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 25, 2013 2:18 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israeli prison authorities transferred three hunger-striking Palestinian inmates to hospital due to a deterioration in their health, prisoners lawyer Jawad Bulus said Thursday.

Tarek Qaadan, Jafar Azzidine, and Samir Issawi were moved from Ramla prison clinic to Israeli hospital Assaf Harofeh, Bulus told Ma'an.

Azzidine and Qaadan, who have been on hunger strike for 58 days, are suffering mineral-deficiencies that harm the function of their vital organs, including their heart and kidneys, the lawyer said.

They were both arrested on Nov. 22 and are being held in administrative detention, without charge or trial.

Al-Issawi, who has been on strike for 166 days, has a fever, and has refused water and medical examinations as part of his protest, Bulus said.

As of December, 178 Palestinians were being held without charge in Israeli jails, including seven elected members of the Palestinian parliament, according to prisoners rights group Addameer.
