Israel to hold hearing for jailed Palestinian hunger striker
Al-Labadi launched a hunger strike on 26 September in protest of the conditions of her detention, her lawyer said on Wednesday, and has reportedly lost 10 kilograms in weight while suffering other health problems.
Jordan's foreign ministry said on Wednesday that the hunger strike "makes the need for her immediate release more urgent".
The PPS said on Thursday a hearing for her case will begin as her health deteriorates under Israeli captivity.
Family members say she has no political causes and is not an activist.
Israeli intelligence claims al-Labadi was detained "because of suspicion of her involvement in serious security violations", without providing further details.
Last week, the Palestinian Commission of Detainees' Affairs released disturbing details of the alleged torture suffered by Hiba al-Labadi at the hands of Israeli authorities.

The department published a statement by al-Labadi from 29 September in which she reported being verbally, physically, and psychologically abused by the interrogators and guards in the various prisons in which she has been held in administrative detention since 20 August.
Israel's widely condemned policy of administrative detention allows Palestinians to be detained without charge or trial for renewable intervals usually ranging between three to six months.
More than 400 Palestinians are being currently being held under the policy.
