THIRTY more prisoners from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) have joined hunger strikes in solidarity with those held in Israeli jails indefinitely without charges or trial.
The PFLP prison branch announced on Monday that the prisoners being held in Negev, Ofer, Ramon and Gilboa jails would be joining the solidarity action.
They joined 19 PFLP prisoners already on hunger strike in protest at Israel’s “administrative detention” of six Palestinians.
They include Huzaifa Halabiya, who has been imprisoned without charge or trial since June 10 2018, when Israeli occupation forces took him from his home. Mr Halabiya is a leukaemia survivor and has burns over the majority of his body which he sustained as a child. He requires medical care as a result and has been suffering ailing health.
Despite this, Israeli authorities continue to shackle him. On August eight guards ransacked the cell where he had been held in isolation.
In a statement the PFLP prison branch said: “As part of our unwavering commitment to support our hunger strikers, a new group of our cadres is joining the open hunger strike to further pressure the prison administration and [Israel’s internal security service] the Shin Bet to respond to their demands.”
