Palestinians in Israeli jails launch mass hunger strike

More than 1 000 Palestinian prisoners begin hunger strike

Protesters have launched sympathy marches in several major towns in the West Bank, such as Hebron and Ramallah. It is known that he has been placed into solitary confinement.

According to reports, he was transferred along with three other prisoners from Israel's Hadarim prison to Jalama prison, north of Jenin in an effort to thwart the ongoing hunger strike among almost 1000 Palestinian prisoners.

In recent years, previous Palestinian hunger strikers in Israeli custody have come close to death and had to be hospitalized. Israel charged him with directing suicide bombings against its citizens and he was sentenced to five life terms.

"Unity against the Israeli occupation's arrogance has always been and still is Palestinian prisoners' message to all", he added.

The hunger striking prisoners' demands include: family visits, proper medical care, end to Israel's practice of detaining Palestinians without charge or trial in so-called administrative detention and stopping the use of isolation.

An estimated 1500 Palestinian prisoners have announced the beginning of an open hunger strike. Palestinian officials and activists estimated the number of participants to be as many as 1,500.

Netflix growth slows down
That proved to be a huge success for Netflix when they entered the global market and it looks like Amazon is right on their heels. All over the world, HBO has around 134 million subscribers and provides the internet-only option. "So it's a risky business".


According to figures provided in February by the Prison Service, at least 6,820 Palestinians, including hundreds of minors, are incarcerated in Israeli prisons. However, Palestinians from the West Bank need an entry permit into Israel and Israeli authorities often deny such permits. Polls suggest that the 58-year-old Barghouti is the most popular choice among Palestinians to succeed the 82-year-old Abbas.

In response, Israel's Minister for Intelligence and Transportation tweeted that Barghouti should have been executed right after his 2004 conviction for five murders as part of the 2 Palestinian Intifada. Mr. Barghouti declined to offer a defense at his trial and refused to recognize the Israeli court's jurisdiction and legitimacy.

Qaraq said more prisoners may join the hunger strike later today, which was planned to coincide with Palestinian Prisoners' Day. He said he organized the hunger strike to fight back, after exhausting all other options.

They're following the guidance of Marwan Barghouti, the admitted former leader of a militia group known as the Tanzim.

"I read, on Sunday, the article in the Times that presents archterrorist Marwan Barghouti as a 'parliamentarian and leader.' The paper recanted after we pointed it out to them", Netanyahu said.

The Palestinian resistance leader will face a disciplinary tribunal for "instigating mutiny and leading the hunger strike", according to Israel's Army Radio.
