The Palestinian Prisoner Affairs Commission said that signs of weariness and exhaustion have begun to show on 11 hunger-striking prisoners protesting the administrative detention policy. They have also begun to suffer from weight loss. 

The Commission's Spokesperson Hassan Abd Rabbo declared that these protests aim to shed the light on "the administrative detention policy that affects close to 450 prisoners in Israeli prisons."

The Palestinian Prisoners Club had declared on July 8th that prisoners in the prisons of "Ofer" and "Naqab" had announced a hunger strike in support of Al-Ghadanfar Abou Atwan, who had been on strike for more than two months. Abou Atwan emerged victorious after his 65-day hunger strike when the occupation made the decision to end his administrative detention and set him free.
