The Palestinian detainee Bilal Diyab, 32 from Kafr Raei town south of Jenin city, announced going on open hunger strike for 16 days in a row.
In a leaked letter from Megiddo Israeli jail, captive Diyab said that he has been detained in a solitary confinement cell which lacks basic needs. He has been using his shirt as a towel, billow and prayer mat, he highlighted.
Prisoner Diyab, who has lost 7 kilograms since he started to fast, decided to continue his open hunger strike until his release in protest at being detained administratively based on no charge or trial for six months.
Israeli occupation forces arrested Diyab after storming his home on July 14. He was among the first prisoners who waged open individual hunger strikes for 87 days in previous arrests.
