He told the PIC that the judge refused to listen to Barghouthi and said that according to what was available of information for her, she could not but extend his isolation.

The lawyer said that Barghouthi appeared in pale face and apparent physical exhaustion but was adamant on persisting in his hunger strike until end of his and his comrades’ isolation.

Barghouthi hailed the Palestinian people’s support for him and called for bigger media attention to the Palestinian prisoners’ massive hunger strike.
