24-Hour Solidarity Hunger Strike Called
The movement declared the strike from al-Saraya Square in central Gaza City, and called upon all Palestinians to “escalate support and solidarity activities with hunger strikers.”
In southern Gaza’s Rafah district, hundreds of activists took part in a human chain in central Rafah city in solidarity with hunger-striking prisoners.
The National Society for Democracy and Law in the Rafah district organized the human chain in cooperation with civil society institutions and activist groups.
Head of the society Ibrahim Muammar stressed during the demonstration “the importance of prioritizing the prisoners’ cause, especially their hunger strike,” adding that Palestinian leadership, official and public institutions should consider the strike “the most important cause.”
