Four Palestinian prisoners have been on their hunger strike for different periods inside the Israeli jails, protesting their administrative detention, the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) said in a statement on Monday. 

The PPS said that political prisoner Hasan al-Awiwi, who started his hunger strike 56 days ago, was transferred to hospital on Sunday as his health conditions have drastrically deteriorated. 

Al-Awiwi, aged 35, a father of three, is an ex-prsisoner who was re-arrested on 15 January without no trial.

 

Thaer Bader, 43, joined the hunger strike on 18 May for the same reason. He was supposed to be realesed on 14 May after he had served several years inside Israeli jails.

However, the Israeli Prison Service ordered to hold him again without any charge or trial. 

On 21 May, Bassam Abu Akar, a father of seven started his hunger strike against his administrative detention for the second year in a row. Abu Baker has spent 24 years of imprisonment in Israeli detention centers. 

The fourth prisoner is Ahmed al-Haroub, 30, an ex-prisoner, who has been on hunger strike since 21 May.
