Muhammad Taj and Mahmoud Sarsak are still on hunger strike

According to Addameer, Muhammad Taj is now hunger striking again. He re-launched his strike May 15, since the Israeli prison authorities rejected his demand to be treated as a POW. Prior to that, he was on a hunger strike for 58 days. As a response, the al-Jalameh prison authorities placed him in solitary confinement and he was beaten yesterday to pressure him to end his hunger strike.

As for Sarsak, Addameer reported that the Israeli authorities have gone back on a deal they had made with him to be released July 1, and are now saying he will not be released before August 22.  He has been on a hunger strike for 60 days now.
