Palestinian Prisoner Enters "Unknown Territory" with 3-Month Hunger Strike

Ramallah, February 24 (RHC)-- An advocacy group says a Palestinian prisoner has entered "unknown territory" with his more than 89-day hunger strike. 

Physicians for Human Rights-Israel says journalist Mohammed al-Qeq has been on hunger strike longer than any other Palestinian prisoner and longer than any of the Irish Republican Army prisoners held by Britain in Northern Ireland, 10 of whom died after their fasts.

Al-Qeq is in critical condition in a hospital.  He is one of nearly 600 prisoners being held under 'administrative detention,' which allows Israel to incarcerate people without charge or trial.
