Maan News Agency | April 22, 2013

15723_345x230[1]GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Jordanian prisoners being held in Israeli jails will go on hunger strike on May 1 to pressure Israeli authorities to release them, Fatah officials in Gaza said Sunday.

Fatah’s commission for prisoners said it received a letter from the Jordanian detainees confirming that 20 prisoners will launch strike action in May to demand that they serve the remainder of their sentences in Jordan.

They are also demanding to be included in any future prisoner swap deal with Israel, and are asking for improvements in jail conditions.

The prisoners urged the Jordanian government to intervene to help them.
