Shalabi ‘Patient, Steadfast’ until Demands Met

Palestinian hunger striker Hana Shalabi said today from Hasharon prison that she is continuing her open hunger strike and remains patient and steadfast until her demands are met.

A Palestinian prisoner society lawyer, Fawaz Shalludy who visited Shalabi, said the prisoner had suffered as the Israeli prison administration put her in an open area in the cold in Ofer detention center.

Shalludy pointed out that the prisoner’s spirits are high although there are signs of fatigue and weakness on her because of the strike.

She thanked everyone who is supporting her, he said.

The prisoner went on hunger strike 15 days ago to protest her administrative detention.

Jawad Boulos, another society lawyer, said Israeli court officials claimed that the reason for the administrative detention was because Shalabi is considered a threat to Israel’s security and safety of its people.

They also claimed that she planned military actions right after she was released.

The defense opposed the court’s decision and called it on to immediately release the detainee since she has been on hunger strike since her first day of detention. They held Israel fully responsible for her health.
