thaerhalahlehPalestinian political prisoner and former hunger striker Thaer Halahleh has been transferred from Ofer prison to Ramla prison clinic following further deterioration in his health conditions, as he suffers from Hepatitis C, which he was infected with during a dental operation at Askelan Occupation prison.

Halahleh, who was released last June after a 77-day hunger strike conducted with fellow administrative detainee Bilal Diab, was re-arrested in April. Once again he has not been charged; Halahleh has been arrested eight times and served six and one half years in Israeli Occupation prisons. He has never been charged with a crime or tried; at all times he has been held without charges or under administrative detention.
