IOF transfer prisoner al-Fasfous to solitary confinement in Askalan
Kayed al-Fasfous has been on a hunger strike for 50 days.
Sources reported to Al Mayadeen, today, Friday, that the Israeli occupation prison administration transferred hunger-striking prisoner, Kayed al-Fasfous, to solitary confinement in Askalan Prison.
On Wednesday, the Israeli occupation military court in “Ofer” rejected the appeal submitted by al-Fasfous who has been in administrative detention and on a hunger strike for 50 days now.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club said the occupation court's decision resembles a death sentence against him, especially after 50 days of hunger strike and the consequent deterioration in his health condition.
The Club explained that al-Fasfous is facing harsh detention conditions, in addition to the systematic abuse he has been subjected to since he initiated his hunger strike.
Furthermore, it stressed that the occupation courts were and still are the primary tool that has consecrated the crime of administrative detention by holding mock courts and implementing the decisions of the occupation intelligence only.
It is noteworthy that prisoner Kayed al-Fasfous (34 years old) from the town of Dura, south of al-Khalil, was re-arrested by the occupation on May 2 and was put in administrative detention. He is a former prisoner who spent about seven years in Israeli prisons.
Al-Fasfous went on a hunger strike at the end of May and the beginning of last June, which lasted for nine days. He had also previously gone on strike in 2021 against his administrative detention, which lasted for 131 days.
He is married and the father of one girl, noting that all his siblings were subjected to arrest. Today, four of his brothers are in administrative detention: Khaled (35 years old), Hassan (37 years old), Akram (39 years old), and Hafez (40 years old). His family was subjected to repeated abuse over many years.
The Israeli occupation resorts to the policy of administrative detention as a form of psychological torture and pressure on prisoners. Trial sessions in administrative detention take place in a non-public manner, which deprives prisoners of their right to a public trial.
