RAMALLAH, May 21, 2017 (WAFA) – More than 200 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails joined on Sunday the over 1,800 hunger striking Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, according to the media committee of the strike.
The decision to join the hunger strike came as the Israel Prison Service continues to reject negotiating the demands of the hunger strikers, the committee added.
For the 35th day in a row, about 1,800 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails are continuing the Freedom and Dignity hunger strike amid strict repressive measures by the Israeli authorities to break their strike.
The hunger strikers are calling for better access to medical care; increased visit duration from 45 to 90 minutes; removal of glass barriers during family visits; improved detention conditions including easing restrictions on the entry of books, clothing, food and other gifts from family members; installing phones to enable prisoners to communicate with their families and an end to the policy of administrative detention.
