This is a short post to update the little we know of the fate of the HROs that Israel kidnapped along with 15 Gazan Fishermen a few days back.
The three Observers, Andrew Muncie from Scotland, Darlene Wallach from the United States and Vittorio Arrigoni from Italy, had begun a hunger strike while in Israeli custody. Vittorio has since ceased his participation in order to release news of their treatment.
Israel has released the fishermen, however refuses to allow the return of the vessels. This is the reason for the hunger strike and deportation refusal. Without their boats, these men can no longer support themselves or their families.
Here is a video of Amy Goodman interviewing the American ISM member, Darlene Wallach.
