Thousands of Palestinian political detainees imprisoned by Israel 
started on Wednesday an open hunger strike.

According to the Prisoners Center for Studies, around eight thousand 
Palestinian detainees being held in 13 deferent military detention 
facilities in Israel are taking part in the strike.

The Prisoners provided the Israeli Prison Administration with five 
main reasons for the hunger strike:

1- Humanilation and abuse during searches of family members before visitations.

2- Canceling family visitations to detainees from the Gaza Strip and 
dozens of West Bank detainees.

3-Using claims of security reasons to cancel family visitations to 
detainees from the Gaza Strip since nearly 4 years.

4-Preventing the detainees from watching Al Jazzera news and not 
allowing books into detention centers.

5-Preventing the detainees from taking the final high school exams.

Israel has canceled family visits to Palestinian political detainees 
from the Gaza Strip since Palestinian armed groups captured the 
Israeli soldier Gil'ad Shalit in Gaza back in June of 2006.
