AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Palestinian sources said on Wednesday afternoon that 300 Palestinian captives in the Nafha desert prison are on hunger strike for the second day running.

According to the sources the open-ended strike started on Tuesday and is lead by 300 Palestinian captives to protest the solitary confinement of many captives for long months and in some cases for years.

According to the same sources the striking prisoners demanded that 15 captives be taken out of solitary confinement and refuse to talk to the prison administration before this demand is carried out.

The sources said that the prison authority is preparing for raiding prison wards to force them to end their hunger strike.

The captives meanwhile appealed to all human rights organisation to adopt the issue of Palestinian captives in solitary confinement and try and see for themselves the extent of suffering of those captives and the suffering of their families who are denied visits.
