Palestinian Hunger Strikes Continue
Israel violates every deal it makes. That's how rogue governments act.
by Stephen Lendman
Over 2,000 Palestinian hunger strikers redefined courage. Their willingness to die for justice was unprecedented.
On May 14, an Egyptian brokered deal was reached. Strike leaders and Israel Prison Service (IPS) officials agreed on terms. They included:
Israel would make specific accusations or release administrative detainees on expiration of their terms.
Solitary confinement would end within 72 hours. All detainees were included.
Family visit bans would end. The punitive Shalit Law would be revoked.
