The number of administrative prisoners on strike in Israeli prisons increased to 13
The Palestinian Prisoners Club announced, on Friday, that the number of administrative prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli prisons has risen to 13, in conjunction with their colleagues taking protest steps.
The (non-governmental) club stated, in a statement, that “the number of administrative detainees who are on hunger strike in the occupation prisons has risen to 13.”
He pointed out that “6 detainees in Rimon Prison (southern Israel) joined the open hunger strike on Thursday, after they were 7 prisoners.”
According to the Captive Club, “the strike began with four administrative detainees on July 30, then a number of others joined them, most notably the prisoner Kayed al-Fasfous, who previously went on several hunger strikes, including a strike in 2021 that lasted 131 days.”
He pointed out that the administrative detainees’ strike “coincides with the militant steps taken by their colleagues in Ofer Prison (west of Ramallah) and several other prisons, and the continuation of about 60 detainees in their boycott of the military courts of the occupation.”
