TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Pupils at a school in Tulkarem went on hunger strike on Wednesday in solidarity with Palestinians in Israeli jails.

Some 120 students at Faroun boys school spent their lunch break holding banners of detainees' names, and listening to national songs and poetry.

The headmaster said students were affected by the struggle of prisoners and decided to strike to support them, so the school canteen closed for the day.
