Israeli authorities deny appeal by hunger-striking Palestinian prisoner
A day after reducing the sentence of Palestinian political prisoner Hana Shalabi from six months to four months, Israeli authorities denied a request by the Palestinian Prisoner support group Addameer demanding that the arresting officer and two others accused of torturing Shalabi be forced to testify.
Sunday marks the 17th day of Shalabi's open-ended hunger strike, which she vowed to continue despite the reduction in her sentence. On 23 February, Shalabi's 65-year old mother and 67-year old father joined her hunger strike in solidarity.
