PPP leader hospitalized after solidarity hunger strike

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A leader of the Palestinian People's Party Mohammad al-Dirbashi was hospitalized on Thursday after joining a solidarity hunger strike in Gaza City, medics said.

Al-Dirbashi was transferred to Shifa Hospital after he fainted at a protest tent, medics told Ma'an.

Fifty-six Palestinians from all political factions have been on hunger strike for over a week in Gaza City to support detainees.

Thousands of prisoners are refusing food in Israeli jails in protest over conditions, including Israel's policies of detaining Palestinians without charge, solitary confinement and banning family visits.

Israel has banned all prisoners from Gaza from receiving family visits since 2007 despite appeals by the International Committee of the Red Cross.
