RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies asked local and international human rights organizations and national and Islamic forces to support the hunger striking prisoners, especially captive Abdullah Barghouti “who risks death at any moment.”

The center called in a press statement on Saturday for escalating events held in support of prisoners in Palestine, Jordan and some Western capitals, in light of the medical reports that confirm the seriousness of Barghouti’s health condition.

It also urged the Palestinian and Arab embassies in Western countries and friendly states to act through the human rights organizations and international pressure groups in order to save the lives of the hunger strikers before it is too late.
