GAZA, (PIC)– Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation jails have announced that they intend to go on hunger strike after one week and defined their demands.

They said in a statement on Tuesday that prisoners of all political affiliations have been in constant contact over the past three years to agree on the unified hunger strike until they finally agreed on that date.

They said that their demands is topped by ending solitary confinement, noting that some of them have been in isolation for ten years in dungeons that lack the simplest life necessities.

Other demands include allowing visits for Gaza prisoners after six years of visit deprivation, and improving incarceration conditions, which worsened after introducing a number of laws punishing prisoners by depriving them of education and of TV channels and newspapers, the prisoners said.

They also demanded an end to systematic humiliation of them and their relatives wishing to visit them, explaining that they demand an end to the strip searches, mass punishments, and night raids on their wards.

The prisoners said that they hope to establish an international pressure lobby against the Israeli government. They called, in this respect, on all free people of the world to exert all efforts possible to support the prisoners and their just demands.
