Fifty prisoners start hunger strike in solidarity with Al-Balboul, AlQadi

The Palestinian prisoner’s society (PPS) Wednesday said 50 prisoners started a hunger strike in solidarity with brothers Mohammad and Mahmoud Balboul and Malik al-Qadi who have been striking for around 70 days.

PPS said that strike will be carried out gradually in Naqab, Nafha, Ofer and Rimon prisons.

Al-Balboul brothers and al-Qadi began their hunger strikes in June 2016 to protect their administrative detention.

Al-Qadi reportedly slipped into coma days ago and is on the verge of death while al-Balboul brothers suffer from increasing pain and their health condition was described as critical.
