Palestinian prisoners to carry on with hunger strike
The Palestinian Prisoners Club confirms that if Palestinian prisoners’ demands are not met, the prisoners will go on strike on Friday.
Head of Palestinian Prisoners Club Abdullah Al-Zaghari told Al Mayadeen that the Israeli occupation is evading any response to the prisoners' demands.
"If the Palestinian prisoners' demands are not met by the occupation authorities, about 1,200 prisoners will go on hunger strike tomorrow," he added.
"There will be a statement by the captive movement in Palestine on the hunger strike on Friday," Al-Zaghari stressed.
On his account, a Palestinian Islamic Jihad official Jamil Alyan told Al Mayadeen that the meeting of Palestinian Prisoners' National Emergency Committee will take place tomorrow.
He added that "the transfer of Palestinian prisoners which “Israel” calls (dangerous prisoners) from one prison to another will take place every few years, not months."
On its account, the Palestinian Prisoners Information Office affirmed its determination to "continue the open hunger strike, until the racist practices imposed by the occupation are halted."
Palestinian prisoners are preparing to start an open hunger strike in protest against the violations of their rights at the hands of the Israeli occupation after they ran out of options to reclaim these rights, Hamas official Ismail Radwan told Al Mayadeen on Monday.
"The cause of the prisoners has a national consensus, and it is one of the triggers [that could lead to an explosion] in the region," Radwan warned, stressing that the Palestinian resistance backed the Israeli occupation, holding "Tel Aviv" responsible for any harm to them.
The official outlined the Israeli occupation's aggressive acts against the prisoners and their families, explaining that the Israeli occupation had persecuted them, deprived them of their rights to visitation, and even strip-searched them.
The Palestinian prisoners had announced a few days ago they would undergo an open hunger strike ahead of the holy month of Ramadan in protest against the oppression and aggression of the Israeli occupation.
