Palestinian leader student resumes hunger strike

(MENAFN) As part of his way of protesting his detention, torture and interrogation without charges, Palestinian student leader Omar Kiswani is on indefinite hunger-strike in Israeli jail.

The head of the student council at Birzeit University started the hunger strike on 19 March, according to reports, citing an update from the Palestinian Prisoners' Society (PPS).

Kiswani is being held at the Al-Maskobiyya interrogation center near Jerusalem, where he has been subject to interrogations of up to 18 hours a day.

PPS lawyer Ma'moun Al-Hasheem said Kiswani informed an Israeli judge about his hunger strike, and the reasons for holding it.

In a violent raid that has prompted widespread condemnation, Kiswani was snatched from Birzeit University campus on 7 March by undercover Israeli occupation forces pretending to be journalists.
