EU 'deeply concerned' over deteriorating health of hunger strikers

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The EU is "deeply concerned" by reports of the deteriorating health conditions of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners, a statement said late Friday.

A spokesperson for EU Foreign Policy Chief Kathryn Ashton said in a statement that the EU "calls for the full respect of international human rights obligations towards all Palestinian detainees and prisoners."

Meanwhile, over a hundred Palestinian prisoners, most of them administrative detainees, entered their 52nd day of hunger strike.

Hunger strikers are demanding Israel end its policy of administrative detention, by which prisoners can be held in custody without charge or trial indefinitely.
