Ramallah, ALRAY - The Israeli prison administration has isolated the leaders of the Palestinian Prisoners' Movement as Palestinian detainees are set to go on a mass hunger strike to protest against the repressive and arbitrary measures imposed against them.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club explained that the Israeli prison service isolated the Palestinian detainees' protest leaders, who embarked on an open-ended hunger strike on Tuesday.
The hunger-striking detainees were transferred to unknown locations.
On February 14, Palestinian detainees in Israeli occupation prisons began a series of mass civil disobedience actions to protest against the punitive measures imposed by the Israeli occupation jail authorities.
The repressive measures included passing racist laws targeting Palestinian detainees, denying them access to medical treatment, reducing shower time, and moving many of them to solitary confinement.
The Israeli occupation is holding at least 4,780 Palestinian detainees, including 30 women and around 160 children, according to Palestinian prisoners' rights organizations.
