RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Ayman Itbeish, 34, on Thursday entered his 105th day on hunger strike in protest against his detention without charge, a prisoner rights group said.

The Palestinian Prisoners' Society said that Itbeish is at Israel's Assaf Harofeh hospital and is surrounded by prison guards. He is suffering from eye, kidney and stomach problems as well as asthma, PPS said.

Ibteish has been detained several times previously and has gone on hunger strikes three times in the past -- twice in protest against his detention with trial -- including for 105 days last year.

Palestinian prisoner human rights organization Addameer estimates that around 183 Palestinians are currently being held in administrative detention.

Over 800,000 Palestinians have been detained since 1967, with 5,224 currently being held in Israeli prisons, according to the PLO.
