#PalHunger | Barghouti’s hunger strike enters its 86th day

[ PIC 27/07/2013 – 10:14 AM ]


OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Jerusalem and West Bank cities witnessed events in solidarity with captive Abdullah Barghouti, who has entered his 86th day of hunger strike.

In the Aqsa mosque, worshipers organized a massive rally and hanged a big photo of prisoner Barghouti on one of the facades of the mosque after Friday congregation.

Meanwhile, many tents have been erected in solidarity with the hunger striking prisoners in Israeli occupation jails in a number of cities in the West Bank.

Barghouti has been chained and isolated in a room in Afula hospital in the 1948 occupied Palestinian territories. He has been exposed to psychological pressure and medical negligence by the Israeli prison administration.

Captive Barghouti started the hunger strike, along with five other Jordanian prisoners, on May 2. They have been refusing to stop their strike despite the serious deterioration of their health conditions as a result of the deliberate medical neglect.
