Ashkelon Prisoners Warn of Open Hunger Strike

RAMALLAH, March 10, 2011 (WAFA) – Prisoner’s Club Lawyer, Louay Akka, said that prisoners in Ashkelon prison are warning of an open hunger strike due to the deteriorating conditions they are suffering from.

Akka added that after a visit to Ashkelon prison, the prison’s administration refuse to grant prisoners their just rights.

Even the dialogue with the administration didn’t help, on the contrary it has worsened the situation, Akka added.

The prisoners confirmed that solitary confinement policy and only allowing first degree relatives to visit them are violations of their rights, especially prisoners in solitary confinement who are not granted visits even from their first degree relatives.
