40 Palestinian detainees launch hunger strike


RAMALLAH, PALESTINOW.COMDozens of Palestinian administrative detainees in Israeli jails have decided to start an open-ended hunger strike on Monday.

About 40 prisoners affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine will join the ongoing hunger strike in Israeli jails on Monday in protest at administrative detention and in solidarity with the hunger-striking detainees.

The detainees have been calling for over a month on the Israel Prison Service to stop extending their administrative detention orders but in vain.

29 Palestinian prisoners have been on hunger strike for different periods in Israeli prisons in protest at their detention administratively without charge or trial.
