More than 1500 Palestinian political prisoners are on hunger strike for their basic rights in Israeli prison # DignityStrike
Head of the Palestinian Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Qaraqe released a statement Wednesday saying that Israeli Prison Services (IPS) forces had “continued to escalate punitive measures” against prisoners, which started on the first day of the strike, with IPS forces transferring prisoners and leaders of the strike to solitary confinement, and preventing lawyers from visiting prisoners, particularly sick prisoners.
A number of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners being held in solitary confinement began refusing water on Wednesday.
