RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Prisoner Raed Faisal Fares Moussa is still on open hunger strike in protest against being held without charge or trial in Israeli jails, the Palestinian Prisoner's Society said Tuesday.

PPS said in a statement that Moussa, 33, has been refusing meals for 42 days.

His blood pressure and blood sugar are "unstable" the statement said, and he is unable to stand on his feet.

Moussa has spent at total of seven years of his life in Israeli jails, having been detained several times, the statement added.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli Prison Service told Ma'an on Monday that there was only one Palestinian prisoner still on hunger strike, but would not name him.

Sivan Weizman said that the one remaining hunger striker had been refusing meals for "a month."

About 125 Palestinian prisoners last week ended a two-month hunger strike, with lawyers saying they had reached a deal with the IPS.

Weizman told Ma'an that no recent hunger strikers had reached any deal with Israeli authorities.

The prisoners were demanding that Israel end its policy of administrative detention, under which Palestinians can be held without charge or trial, sometimes indefinitely.

This man suffers under Israeli paranoia,due to the crimes Israel actually commits but answers to nobody for.Their heart is' endarkened' by this and they suffer under their ... ' endarkened imagination',They go deeper into darkness by punishing others for crimes they merely imagine.They perceive this as "justice".
