Relatives of hunger strikers call for solidarity

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Relatives of Palestinians on hunger strike in Israeli jails on Monday called for solidarity at a protest in Ramallah.

"I will not forgive any human who was able to help my brother and didn't. History will record that," said the brother of Tareq Qaadan at a demonstration outside the Red Cross office.

Tareq Qaadan, Jafar Azzidine and Yousef Yassin have been on hunger strike for 62 days in protest at their detention without charge or trial.

"I can't describe my family's situations," Qaadan's brother told demonstrators, adding that the prisoner's child was questioning his absence.

"How could the world imagine a sick child who asks for his father every minute and when he looks for him we have to explain his absence," he added.

The sister of Samer al-Issawi, who has been on partial hunger strike since August, expressed disappointment at the silence of international human rights organizations.

Samer al-Issawi was previously released in the Oct. 2011 prisoner exchange between Hamas and Israel, but was rearrested in July.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society organized protests across the West Bank on Monday in support of detainees.
