Gaza, Alray – A number of young activists staged a sit-in on Tuesday evening before the main office of the International Red Cross in the Gaza Strip in solidarity with the prisoners on hunger strike.

The participants decided to break their fast on Ramadan 28th with briny water to show solidarity with the hunger strikers.

Yasser Ashour, one of the coordinators of the initiative, said in a press statement that “the activity came to confirm that the prisoners issue must be the focus of everyone’s attention,”

He stressed that young people will remain the Palestinian enforcers of prisoners issue and their work should be huge to activate the issue of prisoners.

Activist Mohammed Hasna called on the Palestinian youth to organize such activities on a regular basis, calling on Arab nations to immediately intervene to save the hunger strikers by pressing their governments to make feasible decisions that would help release them.
