RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- A court hearing for two Palestinian hunger strikers was postponed on Tuesday due to the ill health of both prisoners, a lawyer said.

Jawad Boulos, from the Palestinian Prisoners Society, told Ma'an that Tareq Qaadan and Jafar Azzidine were due to attend a hearing at Ofer's military court but could not attend to due their health condition.

Both prisoners are currently in Assaf Harofeh Medical Center near Tel Aviv.

The session has been postponed until Wednesday, Boulos said.

Azzidine and Qaadan have been on hunger strike for 91 days in protest at their administrative detention, without charge or trial.

Last Thursday, an Israeli court sentenced hunger-striker Samer Issawi to eight months in prison, but he has yet to face a military committee which could imprison him for 20 years.
