Tarek Issawi and Laila Issawi, pose for a portrait next to pictures of their son Samer Issawi at their home in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiyeh, Thursday, April 11, 2013. Detainee Samer Issawi has been on a hunger strike since August when he was detained. His health condition is considered grave and he has been hospitalized now for several weeks. Issawi was sentenced to 26 years in prison for his involvement in a series of shooting attacks targeting Israeli police cars and students at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Issawi was also freed as part of the 2011 prisoner exchange and was re-arrested for violating his release conditions. (AP Photo/Bernat Armangue) less
