Head of Detainees and Ex-detainees Committee, Issa Qarqe, revealed on Friday that the health condition of each of the striking prisoners Ahmad Saadat, Ahed Ghalameh and Mohammad al-Qiq had gravely worsened.
The three captives, who are held in Ohli Kedar Israeli jail, are vomiting blood after 40 consecutive days of hunger strike, Qaraqe said.
In a press release, Qaraqe said that the hunger strikers escalated their demands by asking Israeli authorities to recognize them as prisoners of war and to transfer them to jails located in occupied Palestinian territories.
Qaraqe’s press release was delivered while visiting two hunger striking ex-detainees: Ahmad Awad and Ali Hussein in Beit Jala hospital in Bethlehem. Both ex-prisoners served 18 years in Israeli jails and are now going on hunger strike in solidarity with the striking prisoners in Israeli jails.
