RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinians in administrative detention in Israeli jails will hold a hunger strike on Thursday in protest of their detention, the minister of prisoners affairs said.
Issa Qaraqe said that detainees will continue their protest steps despite the arbitrary punishments imposed on them by the Israeli prison administration.
Over 300 Palestinians are held without charge in administrative detention in Israeli prisons, using laws dating back to the British Mandate period.
