Al Mayadeen's correspondent in Occupied Palestine announced that the leadership of the Islamic Jihad prisoners in occupation prisons has submitted the papers on the hunger strike to the administration of the Israeli Prisons Authority, stating it will begin its strike Wednesday morning.

The Mohaja Al-Quds Foundation explained that the prisoner's presentation of the strike papers is a refusal to continue to suffer under the occupation prisons administration's systematic abuse, and recent attempt to target their organizational structure.

Field sources revealed on Tuesday that the prisoners had postponed their strike, which was originally planned for today.

The sources added that the postponement of the strike occurred after consultations with the Emergency Prisoners Committee and renewed negotiations with the Prison Authority Administration. 

The Islamic Jihad movement had recently warned the Israeli Prison Authority against harming its prisoners. In a press conference in September, the movement denounced the international silence towards the abuse and mistreatment of Palestinian prisoners in occupation prisons.
