Hundreds of Palestinian prisoners conducted a one-day hunger strike today in solidarity with other detainees who’ve been refusing food for months. They’re protesting ill-treatment and continued detention without charges in Israeli prisons. One of the hunger strikers, Samer Issawi has been refusing food for more than 200 days. His family and lawyers warn that he is in a life threatening health situation. FSRN’s Ghassan Bannoura has more on the story.
