Issa Qaraqe, Head of Detainees and Ex-detainees Committee, said that the Palestinian hunger striker prisoner Mahmoud al-Balboul was transferred Sunday evening to Assaf Harofe Hospital after the deterioration of his health condition.

Qaraqe warned of the very bad conditions under which hunger striking detainees are being held and because of which they might die at any moment.

He called on the international community as well as human rights institutions to immediately intervene for saving their lives.

Prisoner Balboul along with his brother have been going on an open hunger strike since early July in protest at holding them under the illegal administrative detention based on no charges or trials.
