Deterioration of health situation of Sahrawi political prisoners on hunger strike

El-Aaiun (Occupied Territories), December 19, 2016 (SPS)-Three Sahrawi political prisoners suffer from deterioration of health conditions as a result of complications of an open hunger strike waged by the group for 4 days in the Black Jail in the occupied city of El-Aaiun, according to the Ministry of Occupied Territories and Community Abroad.



Sahrawi political prisoner Ali Saadouni fell unconscious after he fainted due to complications of the hunger strike and lack of health care by the prison administration, who deliberately and systematically neglect the Sahrawi political prisoners despite the aggravation of their health conditions, added the same source.

It is worth mentioning that the Sahrawi political prisoners Ali Saadouni, Noordin Aarkubi and Khallihenna Fak-Allah had been arrested earlier by the Moroccan occupation authorities in the occupied city of El-Aaiun, where they were referred to the Black Jail in the city. They launched their open hunger strike 4 days ago to denounce ill-treatment and torture exercised against them inside the prison. (SPS)
