Following the failure of talks between the representatives of the Palestinian freedom fighters incarcerated in Israel and the Israel Prison Services (IPS) regarding their demands to cancel all repressive measures recently imposed against them, the Palestinian prisoners decided to start an open hunger strike on the first day of Ramadan, which could be tomorrow, Wednesday, or Thursday.
The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society said in a statement that the letter the prisoners handed to the IPS stated that all prisoners’ representatives have agreed on starting the hunger strike on the first day of Ramadan and that the prisoners are bracing themselves for that as the prisoners refuse to go back on their demand to abolish all repressive measures adopted at orders from the fascist Israeli cabinet minister Itamar Ben Gvir.
The freedom fighters started 36 days ago mutiny steps against the repressive measures, refusing to abide by certain IPS rules.
The PPS said that some of the prisoners’ representatives started today the hunger strike and that the rest of the prisoners will join them on Thursday.
