Activists have organized protests to denounce her illegal administrative detention and to demand her release
While 23 Palestinians have been on a hunger strike since Tuesday, 120 more have joined their cause, demanding public phones, the removal of jamming devices and the return of the 23 prisoners who have been placed under solitary confinement.
The 40 prisoners joined 20 of their comrades who began a hunger strike last week. Six of the eight administrative detainees who launched hunger strikes last month are continuing their protests
The striking detainees join eight others in the same prison who have been on a hunger strike for over a month against their illegal imprisonment.
A Palestinian woman detainee also begins hunger strike against administrative detention.
More than 5,000 Palestinians are currently languishing in Israeli jails. Israeli prison authorities have limited prisoners’ use of water, banned food preparation in cells, installed mobile jamming devices, and placed heavy restrictions on visits by family members.
