Some Israeli leaders are calling for a more blood-soaked crackdown, calling on the state to execute many of the prisoners.

The Palestinian Committee of Prisoners' Affairs released a statement Monday saying that Israeli Prison Service officials have forcibly moved hunger-striking prisoners to different sections of Israeli jails, confiscated their clothes and personal belongings and prevented lawyers and family members from visiting them in jail.

"Decades of experience have proved that Israel’s inhumane system of colonial and military occupation aims to break the spirit of prisoners and the nation to which they belong, by inflicting suffering on their bodies, separating them from their families and communities, using humiliating measures to compel subjugation,” wrote Barghouti. “In spite of such treatment, we will not surrender to it.”
