GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Fifteen activists in the Gaza Strip started a hunger strike protest this week to show solidarity with Palestinian prisoners, local activists said.

Three women and 12 men from different Palestinian political factions are taking part in the protest action, which began several days ago, activist Anam Abu Qnais told Ma'an.

Activists have also set up a protest tent outside the offices of the International Committee of the Red Cross in support of Palestinian prisoners.
