The Supreme National Emergency Committee of the National Captive Movement declared that Palestinian prisoners will partake in a one-day hunger strike on Monday to demonstrate their opposition to the Israeli oppressive tactics.
On Sunday, the Committee issued a press release emphasizing that the hunger strike is part of a series of demonstrations intended to call for the liberation of the ill Palestinian detainee, Walid Daqqa.
The committee stated that the protest is also intended to call for an end to the solitary confinement of three Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine leaders and to challenge the Israeli policy of administrative detention.
The Committee affirmed that the death of Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan in Israeli custody following an 86-day hunger strike has only strengthened the Palestinian prisoners’ resolve to keep up their policy of hunger strike until they gain back their freedom.
It urged all relevant organizations to take action in order to secure the freedom of Palestinian prisoner Daqqa, who is facing the imminent danger of death.
According to the commissions of detainees affairs, around 4,700 Palestinian citizens, including 32 female individuals, 170 minors, and 700 patients, are currently in Israeli prisons.
