Palestinians Hunger Strike

Location: Hebron, West Bank
April 17, 2012

A Palestinian Hamas security walks next a large poster showing Palestinian prisoners during a demonstration in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners held in Israel jails, next to a red cross office in Gaza City, 17 April 2012, calling for the release of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails. Some 1,200 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails began an open-ended hunger strike today and another 2,300 Palestinian prisoners said they would hold a one-day hunger strike to protest what they say are humiliating conditions and measures in Israeli prisons, including strip searches of family members when they visit.
