Israel doubles down to defeat Palestine hunger strikers

Irune Rengel | 21 Abril, 2017, 02:33

Israeli officials said some 1,100 prisoners joined the strike on Monday, which they claimed was called to demand better conditions.

Barghouti is now serving five life sentences for having a prominent role in the second Palestinian intifada - a period of uprising against Israel between 2000 and 2005 that saw the deaths of 3,000 Palestinians and 1,000 Israelis.

The hunger strikes were organised on Monday by notable inmate Marwan Barghouti, who has been touted as a potential president of Palestine in the future. According to Palestinian authorities and the advocacy group Addameer, some 500 of them are held under administrative detention which means they are jailed without charge or trial for a period of six months, which can be extended.

A spokesperson for Israel's Foreign Ministry said in a statement Monday that the prisoners were not political prisoners, but "convicted murderers and terrorists".

The media committee said the strikers aim at restoring many of their rights that were taken away by the occupation prisons administration, which they had achieved through many past strikes.

Patriots' Super Bowl LI win was 'legendary'
A handful of other Patriots players had already opted out of the trip, some citing political differences with Trump. A notable absence was quarterback Tom Brady , who made a morning announcement citing "family matters to attend to".

Many of these people's medical requirements are neglected, and owing to this more than 50 Palestinian prisoners lost their lives since 1967, says the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.

The call for hunger strike came amidst resentment of Israeli's cruel policies towards political prisoners.

The Arab League called on Sunday for global protection for Palestinian prisoners held by Israel, Anadolu has reported.

Shortly after last week's announcement of the hunger strike, Israeli Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan asked for the creation of a military hospital to ensure that hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners were not transferred to civilian hospitals, which have so far refused to force feed hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners, Bethlehem-based Ma'an News Agency reported.

On Monday, the Times online and global print editions ran a piece by Marwan Barghouti titled "Why We Are on Hunger Strike in Israel's Prisons". "In spite of such treatment, we will not surrender to it".

Those on hunger strike have issued a list of demands, including access to phones, extended visiting rights and better medical care. Over the years, polls have indicated that Barghouti is the most popular choice among Palestinians to succeed current PA head Mahmoud Abbas.

Barghouti was arrested in 2002 during the second Palestinian uprising and convicted on multiple counts of murder.

The protest leader, Marwan Barghouti, who has been given four life terms for allegedly masterminding anti-Israeli attacks, was placed in solitary confinement following the initiation of the strike.

Palestinians consider those held in Israeli jails as national heroes.
