Palestinian prisoners to begin hunger strike to protest Israeli collective punishment

The Palestinian prisoner leadership has announced their intention to begin a hunger strike, starting Friday, to protest acts of Israeli collective punishment after the escape of six Palestinian detainees.

Some 1,380 Palestinian prisoners from across the political spectrum will go on hunger strike, according to Haaretz.

Prison wardens and security officials at Gilboa and Shita prisons may also face retaliatory attacks from prisoners in response to the "violent repression against them".

The first phase of the hunger strike will begin on Friday across eight prisons, including Gilboa jail, and will be expanding on 21 September with 100 senior detained leaders joining the hunger strike.
