Jihad Mousa Shariteh, a resident of Ramallah, was among 30 other administrative detainees who started an open hunger strike 15 days ago, that later rose to 50 after 20 prisoners and detainees joined them on Sunday.
The Israeli occupation forces arrested Shariteh on the eighth of May 2022, which was his second arrest since 2020, and transferred him to administrative detention for a period of six months.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club stated that the administrative detainees will continue their strike and that there are currently no indications or results from all dialogues taking place with the administration of the Israeli occupation prisons.
The Prisoners Club also pointed out that the striking prisoners are awaiting the response of the occupation prison administration to their demands, which is expected to be after the end of the Jewish holidays, confirming that new prisoners will join the strike if the demands are not met.
