Female Detainee On Hunger Strike Since Tuesday
Lawyer of the Ad-Dameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, Firas Sabbah, stated that he managed, last Thursday, to visit detainee Amani al-Khandaqji, at the Israeli Asqalan prison, and that she told him that she started an open-ended hunger strike since her abduction by the army last Tuesday. Interrogators are questioning her about a prisoner support Facebook page she manages.
Al-Khandaqji, 27 years old, is from the northern West Bank city of Nablus, she was taken on Tuesday March 20, and decided to declare hunger strike in protest to her illegal arrest and detention.
