Lawyer of Prisoner’s Club Society, Fawwaz Shloudi, said that the Israeli occupation administration transferred the 15-year-old Palestinian prisoner Ubaida Asaid from Ofek criminal prison to Hasharon prison.Shloudi said that Asaid started two open hunger strikes protesting his transfer from Al-Maskopia investigation centre to Ofek prison, an Israeli criminal prison full of violent youth offenders where Asaid’s life was in imminent danger, reports Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency.
Asaid started his first open hunger strike on December30, 2013, continuing for four days. He stopped the hunger strike after receiving a promise from the prison administration to accept his demand of transferring from Ofek prison to a security prison.
However, the administration did not abide by its promise, so Asaid resumed his hunger strike. He stopped it on February 15, 2014, after receiving another promise to be transferred to a security prison which was achieved last Tuesday.
