Jerusalem, MINA – 30 Palestinians under administrative detention continue their open hunger strike for the tenth day in a row, in rejection of the crime of administrative detention by the Israeli occupation, MINA’s Contributor in Palestine reports.

The spokesman for the Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs Commission, Hassan Abd Rabbo, confirmed that the Palestinian administrative detainees are continuing their hunger strike, and there are no indications or results of any dialogues with the Israeli prison administration.
