15 Palestinians arrested in Israeli raids, detainees pursue hunger strike

Israeli occupation forces early Saturday arrested fifteen Palestinians during raids across the West Bank and Arab East Jerusalem, as dozens of Palestinian administrative detainees continued an open-ended hunger strike.


The Palestinian Prisoners Club said in a statement that troops stormed the cities of Ramallah, El Bireh, Nablus, Hebron, Bethlehem and neighborhoods in occupied East Jerusalem, and made the arrests.


Meanwhile, over 30 so-called administrative detainees in Israeli jails refused meals for the tenth day in a row to protest their detention without charges or trial.


Hassan Abd Rabbo, spokesman of the Palestinian Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Authority, said the hunger strike was continuing with no signs of negotiation with the prison administration.
