Red Cross says its Ramallah office will Remain Closed

RAMALLAH, February 14, 2013 (WAFA- PLO news agency) The Ramallah office of
International Committee of the Red Cross will remain closed for as long at
Palestinian protesters stay inside its building, ICRC spokeswoman Nadia
Dibsi Thursday told Voice of Palestine.

She said the office was shut down on Wednesday because it cannot operate
with protesters inside the building.

Khader Adnan, a former prisoner, started Monday a hunger strike inside the
Red Cross office in support with Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails on
hunger strike to demand their release.

He said he was joined in his hunger strike on Thursday by a mother of a
prisoner and an activist.

Adnan himself went on hunger strike for 66 days to protest his
administrative detention in Israel. He was released in April.

Adnan told Voice of Palestine that the Red Cross closed all its offices in
the building and that he remains confined to a hall without any facilities.

Three Hamas lawmakers and officials took refuge inside the Jerusalem office
of the Red Cross for more than a year to prevent an Israeli police order to
expel them from Jerusalem to the West Bank. They were later arrested and
expelled to Ramallah.
