(MENAFN - #Qatar News Agency) Mallah may 21 (qna) - around 5200 palestinian prisoners held in israeli jails will go on a massive hunger strike for one day on thursday in solidarity with the hunger striking administrative detainees wednesday said a press statement by the ministry of prisoners' affairs.



the one-day hunger strike in solidarity with administrative detainees who have been on an open-ended hunger strike since the 24th of april protesting their detention without charge or trial will be a warning to the israeli prison administration said the statement.



"in light of the current grave health condition of prisoners; 20 prisoners were transferred to hospital after long consciousness and others were held in solitary confinement while israel continues its intransigence and refusal to respond to the hunger strikers' demands a prompt political intervention has become a necessary step to rescue the prisoners" said the statement.





meanwhile minister of prisoners' affairs issa qaraqe' said that communications are underway between the palestinian leadership and all countries with the aim to place pressure on israel to meet the hunger strikers’ demands.



the number of prisoners held in israeli jails has reached around 5271 of whom 191 are held under administrative detention and 202 are minors between the ages of 14 and 18. (qna)
