Gaza7Jan1AL-KHALIL (PNIC):-The Israeli prison service (IPS) transferred Palestinian hunger-striking prisoner Rizq al-Rajoub, 61, to Ramon jail in the Negev Desert.

The prisoner’s son, Ahmed, said that the lawyer who visited his father on Sunday told him that he was transferred to Ramon jail, affirming that his father is determined to continue his hunger strike, which he started about nine days ago in protest at his administrative detention.

Ahmed al-Rajoub told the (PNIC) that his father would never accept the Israeli offer to exile him to Sudan and would continue his hunger strike until his martyrdom unless he was released or indicted.

According to the lawyer, the Israeli jailers put prisoner Rajoub in very harsh incarceration conditions, which increased his health suffering.

The lawyer explained that Rajoub was locked up in a very cold isolation cell provided with security cameras and his personal blankets were replaced with dirty ones not protecting him against the cold weather.

The prisoner is also deprived of getting his own clothing and only allowed to take a shower once a week, while prison soldiers storm his cell three times a day.
