Detainee Mona Qa‘dan on hunger strike to protest isolation

12:00 Jul 18 2011 Talmond jail for women (map location undetermined)

JENIN (PIC) 18 July -- Palestinian detainee Mona Qa‘dan has been on hunger strike for the past week to protest her isolation since her arrest on 31/5/2011 in Israeli occupation jails.

Her relatives told the PIC reporter on Sunday that Mona, a senior official in the Islamic Jihad movement, was on her sixth day of hunger strike after being held in isolation for the past 50 days in Talmond jail for women. They said that the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) promised during her hearing on 11/7 to take her out of isolation but did not live up to its promise.

The Israeli court in Salem charged Qa‘dan with membership in an outlawed movement and chairmanship of an outlawed society.

Qa‘dan is the chairwoman of Bara‘a society for Muslim women in Jenin, which was closed by the IOA on the same day she was detained.

Qa‘dan was previously held in Israeli custody for three years on six separate occasions.
