The 40 prisoners from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine 
announced their plan after the end of hunger strike carried out by 20 
other prisoners also in support of the eight, who have been on hunger 
strike for more than a month.

According to the prisoners club, the Israeli prison service has been 
treating the hunger strikers harshly since they started their protest.

The body reported that the hunger strikers have been sent to solitary 
confinement and they are being held in cells “which are not fit for humans”.

    Prisoners held in two sections of Ofer prison in Ramallah refused to
    eat their meals on Sunday night “as an act of protest against the
    targeting of the prisoners’ leaders in Ofer, and the committees that
    run their daily affairs”https://t.co/hZU8QDM0gP
