Palestinians urge boycott in solidarity with hunger strikers

The committee of Palestinian prisoner families in the West Bank city of Nablus has called for the boycott of the upcoming municipal elections in a show of solidarity with a mass hunger strike by Palestinian inmates in Israeli jails.
 
“We are not against elections, but we have demanded that they be postponed until after the end of the prisoners’ hunger strike, to no avail.” They demanded “all those who still have a conscience boycott local elections on Saturday for the dignity of Palestinian prisoners.”
