Jordanian killer of Israeli schoolgirls on hunger strike, demanding release
A Jordanian soldier serving a life sentence for murdering Israeli schoolgirls in 1997 is on a hunger strike to demand his release following the killing of a Jordanian judge by Israeli soldiers, his son said Saturday.

 

“My father started a hunger strike on Friday. He said he demands the government release him from jail after the Israelis killed Jordanian judge Raed Zeiter,” Ahmad Dakamseh’s son Seif told AFP.

 

“He is also refusing to take medicine for his high blood pressure and diabetes.” (AFP)
