NABLUS (Ma'an) -- The Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners' Affairs Committee confirmed, on Tuesday, that Palestinian prisoner, Mahmoud Atallah, continues his open hunger strike for the 15th day against being held in solitary confinement for over five months.

The committee pointed out that Atallah’s health has deteriorated as he stopped drinking water. He suffers from severe stomach aches, continuous dizziness and overall weakness in his body.

The committee added that Atallah, a resident from the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus, has been imprisoned for 17 years and is currently held in solitary confinement in the Israeli prison of Ashkelon.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, there are 5,580 Palestinians being held in Israeli prisons as of November.
