Over 1600 Palestinian Prisoners are currently on hunger strike in Israeli jails

 

Starting on Monday l7 April, the prisoners have been refusing food until basic humanitarian demands are met. Their health is deteriorating. Israeli doctors have refused to force feed them – which is against International Law. Israel is now looking at bringing in foreign doctors.

Amnesty International have called on Israel to end ‘unlawful and cruel’ policies towards Palestinian prisoners. This includes the use of torture during interrogation, solitary confinement, numerous cases of gross medical negligence in cases of acute health issues, alongside the routine denial of visits.
