HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Several Hamas-affiliated MPs including parliament speaker Aziz Dweik went on hunger strike on Sunday in solidarity with prisoners in Israeli jails.

Hebron lawmaker Hatim Qafisha told Ma’an the goal of the one-day protest was to embody the suffering of detainees on hunger strike.

"It is a sentimental and actual participation and a message to the hunger strikers to encourage them to remain firm," Qafisha said.

Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic movement in Israel, is also participating in the hunger strike.

Jafar Azzidine, Tarek Qaadan and Yousef Yassin have been on hunger strike for 27 days in protest at their administrative detention, without charge or trial.

Samer al-Issawi has refused food for 146 days.
