  • Description

    The women's Union in Jordan has demanded the immediate intervention of the United Nations on behalf of Arab hunger strikers in Israeli prisons in occupied territories.

    Detainees in Kafar Yona, Ramleh, Hebron, Ramalleh and Nabius started the hunger strike last week (24 February) to protest about their continued detention without trial.

    In a memorandum issued in Amman, the Women's Union demanded the intervention of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Dr Kurt Waldheim, to secure the release of the detainees, and the sending of a medical team to check the condition of the hunger strikers. They also staged a symbolic hunger strike.
