Minister: PA rejects deporting hunger strikers

Feb. 28, 2013 11:40 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 28, 2013 11:40 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Authority has rejected an Israeli proposal to deport detainees Samer Issawi or Ayman Sharawna, who have been on hunger for over 200 days, the prisoners minister said Thursday.

"We refuse forced deportation because it is an international crime that international humanitarian law and Geneva Conventions condemn," Issa Qaraqe said in a statement.
