NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah visited a sit-in tent for Palestinian hunger strikers on Saturday in Nablus, the Palestinian Prisoner's Society said.

In a statement, PPS praised Hamdallah's visit to the solidarity tent in al-Shuhada square, saying that the visit demonstrated the PM's support for the rights of hunger-striking prisoners.

Around 125 Palestinian prisoners launched a hunger strike on April 24 in protest against Israel's continued use of detention without trial, known as administrative detention.

Palestinians held in administrative detention are often held without charge or trial for months and without access to the evidence leading to their detention, even though international law stipulates this tactic only be used in exceptional circumstances.
