Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails to go on hunger strike

[23-08-2022 10:13 AM]

Ammon News - More than 4,500 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails will this week stage a hunger strike and refuse to show up for so-called "security checks" to protest arbitrary measures by the prison authority.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club said in a statement today that the escalatory steps will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays for the next two weeks, ending up in a hunger strike involving prisoners from all Palestinian factions.

A committee, which was formed by the prisoners after Israel ordered punitive action following the "Freedom Tunnel" jailbreak, said it will respond after the prison administration reneged on pledges it made in March and declared it will take stringent action against prisoners with life sentences, including repeated transfers.

Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces staged dawn raids across about a dozen West Bank cities and arrested 19 Palestinians.
