Palestinian detainees announce hunger strike

March 28, 2011 11:49 P.M. (Updated: March 28, 2011 11:49 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Palestinian detainees in five prisons in Israel announced a hunger strike Monday in protest over their treatment.

Prisoners held in Israel's Nafha, Raymon, Eshel, Ashkelon and Negev prisons will participate in the strike to demand an end to abuse by prison guards, a prisoners' center said.

The detainees were also demanding that Israeli prison authorities stopped the practice of solitary confinement, the center added.

The center called on human rights organizations to intervene on behalf of political prisoners, noting that many Palestinians had died in Israeli custody.
