RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Palestinian administrative detainees continued their hunger strike for 51st day running demanding an end to their illegal detention.
The Israeli prison authority has taken punitive measures against several hunger strikers to force them to beak their strike, and isolated many of them in special cells and hospital rooms.
Hunger strikers’ families have called for intensifying popular events and sit-ins in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners’ protest steps.
Meanwhile, human rights sources confirmed that 5000 Palestinian detainees are expected to join the hunger strike in solidarity with the administrative detainees.
General strike was also declared in occupied Jerusalem on Thursday in solidarity with hunger striking administrative detainees amid heavy Israeli military presence.
