Nouvelle décision sioniste pour dissuader les prisonniers en grève de la faim
As Palestinian prisoners are expected to go on mass hunger strike in all Israeli prisons, Israel’s Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan decided Sunday to regroup the prisoners in Negev jail and to establish a field hospital outside the prison.
Israeli Second Channel quoted Erdan as saying that “field hospitals are to be established outside the prisons to provide a response to the hunger strikers and thus to prevent the evacuation of prisoners to civilian hospitals.”
“I have instructed the prison service to act in any way to contain the strike within the walls of the prisons,” Erdan said.
Adequate medical support will be provided to prisons to avoid the need to move striking prisoners to civilian hospitals as required by the Israeli Health Ministry, according to his statements.
Thousands of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons are expected Monday to begin a mass hunger strike called by jailed Fatah senior official Marwan Barghouthi.
The hunger strike coincides with Palestinian Prisoners Day, an annual event held in solidarity with the more than 6,500 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails including 58 women, 300 children, 500 administrative detainees, and 1,800 sick prisoners.
