Palestinian prisoners to face IOF oppression with hunger strike
The prisoners announce that the hunger strike will begin on the first day of the upcoming Holy month of Ramadan as long as the prison administration does not stop its punitive and oppressive measures.
The Supreme Emergency Committee of the National Captive Movement confirmed on Saturday that the hunger strike has become the most likely option for the prisoners to confront the Israeli occupation prison administration.
The committee pointed out in a statement that "during the coming hours, the written wills of the prisoners who will go on a freedom strike or martyrdom will be published."
Regarding the approaching date of the open hunger strike: "Our enemy continues its oppression and its declared attack on us, its hatred and criminality continue to push it to target us, and we will fight this arrogance with the determination and will that you [Palestinian nation] have known us this, and we will stop this onslaught."

"The prisoners have reconciled themselves to the battle of the strike of freedom or martyrdom," declaring that "the strike will begin on the first day of the upcoming Holy month of Ramadan as long as the prison administration does not stop its punitive measures supported and approved by the Ministry of National Terrorism and its criminal minister - Itamar Ben-Gvir"
The committee called on the official institution, popular organizations, the people, and all factions and parties to continue to support them and to strengthen this support as the prisoners approach the open hunger strike. It also requested that supportive rallies take place next Tuesday at 7:30 pm in all city centers, according to the arrangements announced by the organizers.
The prisoners inside the occupation prisons persist with their organized civil disobedience to protest the occupation's brutal policies for the 33rd day in a row.
Among the punitive measures taken by Ben-Gvir against the prisoners are limiting the amount of water in the prisoners' quarters, cutting off their hot water, placing locks on the bathrooms designated for showering, restricting access to showers, and reducing the time designated for showering.
Last Saturday, the Committee called for a national demonstration to be held every Tuesday to commemorate the "Red Tuesday" on which the Palestinian people made grave sacrifices against British colonialism.
The Prisoners' Movement called on their national kins to make every Tuesday, "Freedom Tuesday" emphasizing that "solidarity among families against the colonial jailer must be strengthened, and this solidarity must transcend all else."
The committee also called on the families of the martyrs to be at the vanguard during the demonstrations next Tuesday at 7:30 pm.
