The father of Heba al-Labadi, a Jordanian girl who was recently arrested by Israeli forces, has expressed concern over the health of his daughter because of the hunger strike which she started two weeks ago in protest at her arbitrary detention.

“My daughter has been exposed to harsh detention conditions and her health is deteriorating because of her hunger strike for 14 days,” the prisoner’s father told a local Jordanian satellite channel.

“No accusation has been leveled against Heba. She was arrested at the Karama crossing as she was going to the West Bank to attend a wedding party and then interrogated for long hours under very difficult conditions,” he said.
