Palestinian child prisoner Ubaida Asaid ended his hunger strike on February 1, after occupation authorities agreed to transfer him from the Ofek criminal youth Israeli prison to HaSharon prison with Palestinian political prisoners.
Asaid, 15, was abducted by ocupation forces on November 13, 2013, and then abducted again with his 13-year-old brother Osman two weeks later. Osman was released after paying a $3000 fine and is now under house arrest and prohibited from even going to school.
Ubaida was transferred to Ofek where he was in danger and was denied family visits. He began a hunger strike on January 27. Inminds reported that the transfer to HaSharon will take place within 10 days. They protested in London at infamous prison contractor G4S headquarters raising awareness about Ubaida’s case on January 31.
