Some 1,500 Palestinian political prisoners held by Israel launched a mass hunger strike on Monday to press for basic rights and shed light on the difficult humanitarian conditions inside Israeli prisons, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies.

The open-ended hunger strike, one of the largest in recent years, coincides with Palestinian Prisoners Day, annually commemorated on April 17. Led by jailed Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti, the strike will see Palestinian prisoners from across the political spectrum participate from within six prisons inside Israel.

"They have central demands and will continue to fast until they achieve them. The prisoners see hunger striking as the only door they can knock on to attain their rights," Amina al-Taweel, the centre's spokesperson, told Al Jazeera.

"Even though it is one of the most dangerous and difficult decisions, they are only making this choice because conditions [inside the prisons] have reached a new low," said al-Taweel.

Rallies are expected to take place across major Palestinian cities in the occupied territories including Ramallah, Hebron and Nablus, in solidarity with the plight of prisoners.

My posts clearly show the hypocrisy of western politicians. They have nothing to do with Humanitarianism.
They say nothing about some crimes and say lots of things about some crimes.

I know my posts are not welcome because they show crimes they don't want to talk about. They want to hide them.
It is enough to me to understand. Bye!

Senior Catholic patriarch joins Palestinian hunger strikers.
The Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, and Alexandria and Jerusalem has reportedly started refusing food in a show of solidarity with hundreds of Palestinians, who have gone on hunger strike in Israeli jails in protest at the administrative detention policy and harsh prison conditions.

Gregory III Laham, 83, started the pro-Palestinian measure on Saturday, Arabic-language Wattan news agency reported.

The development came a day after the Palestinian Prisoners' Society (PPS) announced that at least 15 Palestinians in the Israeli-run Ofer prison near the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah had launched an open-ended hunger strike.

There are also reports that the Tel Aviv regime is considering force-feeding Palestinian hunger strikers in an attempt to put an end to their protest.

The Israeli Health Ministry has ordered hospitals to get ready to receive hundreds of hunger strikers. The ministry said hospitals should force prisoners to take medicines or nutrients if they are in a life-threatening condition or risk permanent disabilities.

Since April 17, more than 1,600 Palestinian prisoners have joined the protest action, dubbed the Freedom and Dignity Strike, which was initially called by imprisoned and former Fatah movement leader Marwan Barghouti.
The strikers are demanding basic rights, such as an end to the policies of administrative detention, solitary confinement and deliberate medical negligence.

The much criticized administrative detention is a policy under which Palestinian inmates are kept in Israeli detention facilities without trial or charge.

Back in 2012, a similar hunger strike, involving some 2,000 Palestinian inmates, ended after an agreement was reached with Israeli authorities to terminate the policy of internment without trial or charge.

The Palestinian inmates regularly hold hunger strikes in protest against the administrative detention policy and their harsh prison conditions.

Nearly 700 prisoners are currently held in administrative detention. Some of the inmates have been held in prison under the policy for up to 11 years.

Gosh, it's almost like the world is so complex that just one person can't wave a wand and fix things! Or that they have so many things to do they can't do them all, even if they aren't in a position of power!

You know, we can't have EVERYTHING stuffed in our face all at once. It would be too much to bear all the world's suffering. Throw that on top of the accusations and sources you use, and we'll go elsewhere to read this sort of news.

Also on the subject of hypocrisy, you said "Bye" which I assume meant you had nothing more to say but then re-posted in the topic.

It's been interesting to reflect on how or why I can or should not take you too seriously, and I think it's useful for people to be able to face this sort of thing from one person to see how to resist propaganda in general.

I particularly enjoy the idiom section of this fine website.

Andrew Schultz, you just assumed about my "bye" and you were wrong. "I don't expect something good from the US toward Palestinians" that was the meaning of my "bye".

How marvellous it would be if he were to feel equal compassion for the children and beautiful babies who for many years have endured weapons just as cruel and have had the misfortune to be born in Gaza and the West Bank. I find it strange to think that Palestinian children are not deserving of his identical care.

Hm, wouldn't it have been easier to type that out in the first place, so you aren't confusing people? Whether or not English is their first language, and they're trying to learn it? Otherwise, it reads like propaganda that can mean whatever it feels like.
