RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails decided to go on hunger strike for one day Tuesday in a “protesting the ongoing aggressive attack against them,” the ministry of prisoners’ affairs announced.

In a statement Monday, the ministry highlighted that prisoners “are adamant to go on with struggle to obtain their rights by force.”

The statement added that many Palestinian prisoners in Israeli custody were in real danger because of medical negligence. Furthermore, the Israeli Prison Service has resumed the policy of solitary confinement against prisoners in addition to the ongoing inspection raids, it said.

The announcement comes as eight Palestinian prisoners continue an open hunger strike.

According to the statement, Muammar Banat, Wahid Abu Mariya and Akram al-Fseisi have been on hunger strike for 69 days. Meanwhile, Amir Shammas has been on hunger strike for 66 days. Kifah Hattab from Tulkarem has been on hunger strike for 44 days. Ayman Tbeish, Arif Hreibat and Hamad Abu Ras from Hebron have been on hunger strike for 18 days.
