Published on Tuesday, 20 May 2014 11:03



The High Leadership Committee for Palestinian Prisoners has announced that the health condition of some of the hunger striking prisoners is rapidly deteriorating.

The committee has reported that that three prisoners, Nael Khalaf, Yasser Badrassawi and Maher Barqan, who have been on strike for 26 days in a row, were vomiting blood two days ago, and that Ayman Tbeish's health is also subject to danger, after 80 days of open-ended hunger strike.

The committee has also confirmed that some senior prisoner leaders, like Abbas al-Sayed, leader of Hamas, also joined the hunger strike this past Sunday.

Qassam Brigades report on their website that some of the Palestinian administrative detainees are in serious danger and close to death.
