The Palestinian Detainees’ Committee has reported, Sunday, that three detainees from Hebron governorate, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, are ongoing with hunger strikes, rejecting their continued arbitrary Administrative Detention, without charges or trial.

The Committee stated that Odah al-Hroub and Hasan al-‘Oweiwi, started the hunger strike 41 days ago, while detainee Salim Rajoub, started his strike 18 days ago.

It added that the Israeli Prison Service has repeatedly transferred the hunger striking detainees to various detention centers, to impose more pressure on them, and prevent them from resting, to break their strike.

The detainees are now suffering from pain, sharp migraines, in addition to repeatedly vomiting, and are unable to walk or move.

The Committee warned that Israel is placing the detainees in serious risks by frequently transferring them, and preventing them from resting.

It is worth mentioning that al-Hroub, 32, from Deir Samit town, is a father of ten children, and was abducted in December of 2018, while al-‘Oweiwi, 35, a father of three children, was abducted on January 15, 2019, and is a former political prisoner who spent years in Israeli prisons and held several hunger strikes rejecting his illegal Administrative Detention.

Both al-Hroub and al-‘Oweiwi are held in “Nitzan al-Ramla” Israeli prison, while Rajoub is in al-Ramla prison.

There are more than 500 Palestinian detainees, imprisoned by Israeli under Administrative Detention orders, without charges or trial.

At least 5700 Palestinians, including around 230 children and 48 women, are imprisoned by Israel in various prisons, detention and interrogation centers.
