Palestinian prisoners begin landmark hunger strike

Palestinian administrative detainees in Israeli prisons began an open-ended hunger strike on Monday in protest against their detention for extended periods of time without trial, Palestine’s Prisoners Centre said.

In a statement released by the prisoners centre, it was confirmed that four administrative prisoners have begun a hunger strike which will be expanded and extended if the Israeli prison services do not respond to their demands.

More administrative prisoners, including ten MPs, are planning to join the hunger strike day after day. There are over 200 administrative prisoners in Israeli prisons, all of whom will be joining the hunger strike within days.
