Palestinians
call off mass hunger strike as Israel agrees to their demands
September 15, 2021
------------------------------

Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails today called off a hunger strike
they were planning to start on Friday after the Israel Prison Services
(IPS) agreed to their demands that included ending the collective
punishment imposed against them following the escape of six prisoners from
Gilboa prison last week, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Society
(PPS).

*WAFA *reported the prisoners were planning to start a hunger strike on
Friday that would have involved all 4,500 Palestinians incarcerated in
Israel.

The IPS implemented punitive measures

against all the prisoners following news that six Palestinians had escaped

the high security Gilboa Prison last week. Prison authorities raided cells,
attacked detainees, moving them to other prisons, separating them,
isolating some, and denying them certain rights, including family visits
and buying essentials from the canteen.

Four of the six escapees have been caught
