Israeli prison service transfers 60 hunger-striking prisoners to isolation cells

Days of Palestine – Ramallah – The Israeli prison service has transferred 60 hunger-striking prisoners, who are members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, to isolation cells in different jails.

These PFLP prisoners started an open-ended hunger strike four days ago after their talks failed with Israeli jailers about ending the isolation of prisoner Wael al-Jaghoub and a group of prisoners.

According to the Palestinian Prisoner Society, prisoner Wael al-Jaghoub and other prisoners intend to join the mass hunger strike as of Monday.
