UN Watching 1,600 Palestinian Hunger Strikers

UN Watching 1,600 Palestinian Hunger Strikers

Alwaght- The United Nations is keeping a close eye on the situation of more than 1,600 Palestinian prisoners, who have launched an open-ended hunger strike in Israeli regime's jails, the international body's spokesman said on Tuesday.

Unprecedented in scale, the protest started on Monday to force Israeli prison authorities to provide more humane conditions for the inmates.

“We are obviously aware of the situation and following the developments closely,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said on Tuesday. He said “as a matter of principle, wherever it may be, we always call for prisoners to be treated in a humane way.”

The protest leader, Marwan Barghouti, who has been given four life terms for allegedly masterminding anti-Israeli attacks, was placed in solitary confinement following the initiation of the strike.

The Israel Prisons Service spokesman Assaf Librati said Barghouti had been transferred from Hadarim Prison to the Kishon Prison, near Haifa.

The move came after he published an opinion piece in The New York Times on the hunger strike.

Israeli authorities have ruled out negotiating with the striking Palestinian prisoners.

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said the hunger strikers “are terrorists and incarcerated murderers who are getting what they deserve and we have no reason to negotiate with them.”

Palestinians have rallied in the occupied West Bank in support of the hunger strikers. The protests led to clashes with Israeli forces.

The hunger strike actions are a continuation of global calls, including those made by the UN, for Israel to end its apartheid-style occupation of the Palestinian territories and its ongoing subjugation of Palestinians. According to human rights group Addameer, more than 800,000 Palestinians have been placed in prison or otherwise detained by Tel Aviv regime in the past five years alone, a figure amounting to some 40 percent of Palestine's male population, including those under the age of 18.

The Israeli legal system is considered by many to be unofficially broken into two distinct branches, with one acting for Israeli citizens and another entirely devoted to the prosecution and punishment of Palestinians.
