RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – Palestinian prisoners in Israel’s Ashkelon prison have started an open hunger strike to support Islamic Jihad affiliated prisoner Khader Adnan, the Palestinian prisoners’ society said Sunday.

Prisoner Nasser Hmeid told the society’s lawyer Kareem Ajwah that six prisoners already started a hunger strike and that another group joins them every day, a statement from the society said.

In a week, he added, all inmates in Ashkelon will be on hunger strike in an attempt to exert pressure on Israel to release Khader Adnan.

He added that prisoners sent a letter to the Israeli prison service demanding the immediate release of Adnan and annulling his administrative detention. The letter held the Israeli government responsible for his well-being.

Solidarity with Adnan includes all Israeli jails with Palestinian prisoners, he said. More than 90 prisoners are now on hunger strike, while many others in different Israeli prisons refuse to receive meals from the prison service.
