Hamas terrorists imprisoned in Israel last week announced they are beginning a hunger strike in protest over harshening of conditions. However, it appears that they are eating in secret, News12 reported on Wednesday.
On the other hand, it is reported that terrorists affiliated with the Islamic Jihad who are imprisoned in Rimon Prison and have been moved to the prison hospital in Ayalon Prison, have announced they are stopping to drink water.
The report states there are 50 prisoners returning their meals daily as part of the hunger strike, protesting the blocking of cellular telephone signals in their prison. It appears these ‘hunger-strikers’ have hidden foods, which they are eating on the sly.
At the same time, negotiations are continuing, and they have made three primary demands; canceling the cell blocking, renewing family visits and cancelation of sanctions. They want to be able to continue making canteen purchases and enjoying other privileges.
The Israel Prison Authority installed the cell blocking technology after learning the imprisoned terrorists were using the cellphones to plan and direct terror attacks.
