Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli detention are expected to
escalate in response to ongoing Israeli repressive measures against them,
according to prisoners’ advocacy groups.

The Palestinian Authority’s Detainees Affairs Commission and the
Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) said today that the first step of the
escalation will be a boycott of the Israel Prison Service (IPS) and its
rules and will be followed by a gradual hunger strike by the prisoners with
more prisoners expected to join the strike every day.

More than 2000 Palestinian prisoners will start a hunger strike on Saturday
in protest of the Israeli repressive measures and collective punishment
inside prisons, following the #Gilboa

The PPS also said that the prisoners are expected to begin a gradual hunger
strike starting Friday.

Over 4,500 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons have been
facing an Israeli repressive campaign following the escape of six
Palestinian freedom fighters from Gilboa prison on Monday.

Four of the six prisoners have been caught last night and this morning
while the remaining two are still at large.

Last week, in response to the Israeli crackdown, the prisoners set fire to
detention cells inside the Israeli prisons of Ofer and Kzi’ot in protest
against the IPS measures, which included sending many prisoners to solitary
confinement and restricting prisoners’ access to essential services.
