Seventy-six hunger-striking Palestinian inmates held in Israeli prisons have been hospitalized due to critical deterioration of their health conditions, as a mass hunger strike by Palestinian prisoners has entered its 30th day.
The Arabic-language al-Aqsa satellite television network announced the news on Tuesday, adding that the inmates, who are all kept in Israel’s Ofer prison, were taken to Hadrim field hospital for treatment and possible force-feeding. It added that a day earlier, 36 other hunger-striking prisoners from the same detention center had been taken to the hospital for similar reasons.
Meanwhile, Imprisoned hunger strike leader, Marwan Barghouti, has said that he has decided to stop drinking water to express his profound protest at the conditions in Israeli prisons.
