RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – All Palestinian prisoners who have been on hunger strike in Israeli custody since April 24 have been evacuated to hospitals after their health deteriorated seriously, a lawyer said.

Jawad Bolous, who works for the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society, said that most Israeli hospitals from Soroka in southern Israel to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba in central Israel, received prisoners.

The Israeli prison service, added Bolous, has been exerting serious efforts for two days to work out a settlement with hunger strikers in light of the ongoing deterioration.

Several officers representing the Israeli prison service visited hunger strikers for talks.

The officers suggested a meeting with leaders of Palestinian prisoners at Rimon prison, but the request was turned down because the Israelis did not want a representative of hunger strikers to join the talks.
