The Palestinian Detainees’ Committee has reported that four detainees, held by Israel under arbitrary Administrative Detention orders without charges or trial, remain in solitary confinement since they declared their strikes.

The Committee stated that Anas Shadeed and Ahmad Abu Fara, both from the southern West Bank city of Hebron, are held in solitary confinement cells in Ramla prison since their started their strike on September 25, 2016.

It added that Hasan Rabay’a and Majd Abu Shammala, from the northern West Bank district of Jenin, started their strikes on October 4, 2016, and are held in solitary confinement at the Negev Detention camp.

The striking detainees are facing very difficult conditions, and are completely isolated from other detainees, and the rest of the world.

They are suffering pain in most parts of their bodies, are unable to sit or stand, and are still refusing to take any forms of medications or vitamins.

The committee said that Anas Shadeed and Ahmad Abu Fara are refusing to be examined by Israeli prison doctors, and demanding to be hospitalized.

Qaraqe’ demanded moving the striking detainees to hospitals instead of forcing them in solitary confinement as this measure poses further risks and complications.

He added that the Israeli Authorities deliberately violate the basic right of the striking detainees, especially by holding them under inhumane conditions in solitary confinement, and completely isolate them.
