Youngest Palestinian imprisoned under administrative detention in Israeli is thinking of starting hunger strike, committee revealed on Thursday.

The Palestinian boy Nour Issa, 16, is the youngest Palestinian prisoner under Israeli administrative detention, the PLO’s Prisoners and Freed Prisoners Committee (PFPC) said.

“Issa is seriously thinking of starting an open-ended hunger strike,” the PFPC said, noting that he was subject to severe torture during Shabak investigations.

According to the PFPC, Issa is thinking of starting the hunger strike in protest against the “oppressive” kidnapping from his home and being put under administrative detention instead of being released.

The PFPC said that if the Israeli occupation authorities did not end his administrative detention, Issa would go on hunger strike.

Issa was scheduled to be released on August 1, but he was shocked when he was told that his detention was renewed for extra three months.
