Palestinian hunger strikersThree Palestinians on hunger strike in Israeli detention will die unless authorities find a quick solution, the International Committee of the Red Cross warned Friday.

Samer Barq, Hassan Safadi and Ayman Sharawneh have been on hunger strike for weeks to demand their release from administrative detention without trial, an ICRC spokesman said.

The ICRC said it was “extremely concerned about the deteriorating health” of the men who are on long-term hunger strike.

“These people are going to die unless the detaining authorities find a prompt solution,” the head of the ICRC delegation in Israel and the occupied territories, Juan Pedro Schaerer, warned in a statement.

He also stressed that Israel should respect World Medical Association resolutions that say detainees should be permitted to choose whether they are fed or receive medical treatment.
