Our picture of the day for Saturday December 10th shows a demonstration held in Ramallah to support the hunger-strikers Ahmed Mohammed Abu Fara(29), Anas Ibrahim Shadid(19) and Ammar Ibrahim Hmour(27) and Kifah Abdel-Rahman Hattab(52).
Abu Fara, Shadid and Hmour are imprisoned without charge or trial. Abu Fara and Hmour have been 79 days on hunger-strike, Hmour 20 days and Hattab 19 days.
Abu Fara, Shadid and Hmour demand that they will be released without extension to their administrative detention.
Hattab, a captain and pilot of Palestinian authority who was trained in former Yugoslavia, was kidnapped by Israeli occupation in 2003 and sentenced to two life sentences in Israeli occupation’s military court.
He has been denied family visits for two years for refusing to wear a prisoner’s outfit during family visits and demands to be treated as a prisoner of war.
Head of the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Qaraqe has claimed that the Israeli occupation is “deliberately” and “slowly killing” hunger-strikers through the tactics it uses against them.
