The Palestinian detainee in Israeli jail Samer Al-Issawi continues Tuesday, 22 November 2022 his open-ended hunger strike for 23 days in a row in solidarity with the families of the murdered Palestinians by the Israeli occupation.
Israeli occupation authorities transferred the Palestinian prisoner Al-Issawi to the cells of the Raymon prison because he refused to suspend his hunger strike, three days ago.
Al-Issawi was injured as a result of the brutal attack he was subjected to two days ago by the Israeli occupation oppression units during the storming of Section 25 in the Israeli jail of Negev.
Al-Issawi was arrested in 2003 and sentenced to 30 years in prison before he was released in 2011 as part of a prisoner exchange deal but he was rearrested in July 2012.
Al-Issawi began a hunger strike for 9 months following his arrest in 2012. Later, he gained his freedom in December 2013 to be re-arrested again by the Israeli occupation in June 2014.
The Israeli occupation has escalated its administrative detention policy against Palestinians as the number of administrative detainees currently exceeded 760, including minors, women, and the elderly, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Commission.
The Commission added that 80 percent of the administrative detainees are former prisoners who spent years in the prisons most were administrative detentions.
Israel’s illegal policy of administrative detention is a pre-emptive measure that allows the detention of Palestinians without charge or trial for lengthy periods of time based on disclosed allegations that even a detainee’s lawyer is barred from viewing.
Palestinian detainees have constantly resorted to hunger strikes as a method to oppose their administrative detention, demanding an end to this illegal policy that violates international law and Human rights accords.
