JENIN, (PIC)– Families of prisoners in Jenin staged today a sit-in in the protest tent in the center of the city, in solidarity with prisoners.

The protestors called for intensifying pressure on the occupation to save the lives of the hunger striking prisoners, and allow doctors to enter the jails and take care of patient and striking prisoners.

Dima Mahajna Director of the Red Cross in Jenin, talked to the protestors about the prisoners’ conditions inside the jails, in the light of the repressive measures of the occupation government against them.

She said that the Red Cross continues to pressure the Israeli authorities to find a solution and save the hunger strikers’ lives.
