The number of Palestinian prisoners, who are going on hunger strike in solidarity with the Palestinian detainee Nora Al-Hashlamon, is on the rise, according to a Palestinian legal center.

The director of the prisoners" studies center, Ra"fat Hamdona, said in a press release that the Israeli prisons authority (IPA) was concerned over the expanding number of those joining Hashlamon"s hunger strike that started 12/3/2008 in protest over her unjustified administrative detention.

He said that the IPA moved a number of prisoners from Negev jail to other prisons fearing expansion of the strike in Negev, where Hashlamon"s husband is incarcerated.

Hamdona quoted a prisoner in Negev as saying that the husband along with four others was transferred from the jail a couple of days ago for starting an open-ended hunger strike and for instigating others to join the strike.

Hashlamon"s cousin along with another internee also started a hunger strike on Wednesday, he elaborated.

Hashlamon, a mother of six children, started her hunger strike after the IPA decided to extend her administrative detention, without trial or charge, for the seventh consecutive time.
