Palestinian prisoners go on hunger strike

Almost 4.6 thousand Palestinian prisoners in 'Israel" refused to eat breakfast on Wednesday.

According to the WAFA news agency, this was their tribute to the memory of an ex-officer of Palestinian security forces who died of throat cancer in prison.

The hunger strike will last for three days, according to Voice of Russia, RIA

The Palestinians believe that the ex-officer died because he did not receive professional medical aid. In this connection, Palestinians tried to organize defiance actions in several prisons. The protests were severely suppressed by the prison authorities.
