Palestinian prisoner enters 119th day on hunger strike

June 26, 2014 12:37 P.M. (Updated: June 26, 2014 4:17 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian prisoner Ayman Tbeish is suffering serious health complications as he enters the 119th day of a hunger strike to protest his detention without trial.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society said that Tbeish began hunger strike action on Feb. 28 and is suffering from heart, kidney and stomach problems.

He is also suffering from numbness in his limbs and visual impairment.

Tbeish went on a 105 day hunger strike in 2013 that ended in an agreement which Israel later broke by issuing new administrative detention orders against him.

On Tuesday, 63 Palestinian prisoners suspended a hunger strike which they had observed in Israeli jails since late April, one of their lawyers said.

Shawqi al-Ayasa, the minister of prisoner affairs for the newly-formed Palestinian unity government, confirmed the suspension of the hunger strike, saying a major portion of prisoners' demands had been met.

Some 5,000 Palestinians are being held in Israeli jails, with nearly 300 in administrative detention.
