Former hunger striker transferred to hospital

July 15, 2013 10:00 A.M. (Updated: July 15, 2013 8:17 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Former hunger striker Thaer Halahla was transferred to an Israeli prison hospital on Sunday, a prisoners group said.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society said Halahla's health has deteriorated after contracting Hepatitis C in an Israeli prison.

Halahla, from the Hebron-district town of Kharas, held a 77-day hunger strike last year to protest his detention without charge by Israel.

He was released in June 2012 after reaching a deal with Israeli prison authorities and greeted by crowds of supporters.

Israeli forces rearrested Halahla in April this year, and Israeli doctors in Ofer prison informed him that he had contracted Hepatitis C during a dental operation in Ashkelon jail, probably because non-sterile tools were used, Addameer prisoners group said.
