Gaza17Apr3RAMALLAH (PNIC):-Lawyer of Detainees and Ex-detainees Committee, Karim Ajwa, affirmed that the hunger striking prisoners in Ashkelon Israeli jail are suffering critical health conditions.

The media committee of the hunger strike quoted lawyer Ajwa, who visited the hunger striker Othman Ziyada in Ashkelon jail on Thursday, as saying that the striking detainees are complaining of fatigue and tiredness and have lost over 20 kilograms of weight. 

Israeli Prison Service (IPS) has been continuing daily search operations and confiscation of prisoners’ personal belongings. Four striking detainees were transferred to field hospitals over the past three days after the deterioration of their health conditions, the lawyer added. 

Captive Ziyada underlined that three sick prisoners: Othman Abu Kherj, Yasser Abu Turki, and Ibrahim Abu Mustafa are going on the open hunger strike despite illness.
