Hundreds of Palestinians held by Israel on hunger strike

Supporters hold up posters bearing a picture of Palestinian Bilal Kayed during a demonstration against his detention by the Israeli authorities near the Red Cross offices in East Jerusalem on August 3, 2016Hundreds of Palestinians in Israeli prisons were observing a hunger strike Friday, in a new wave of protest that Palestinian officials said was expected to grow. Some of the strikers accused Israeli jailers of “harassment” while others refused food in solidarity with prisoner Bilal Kayed, who has been fasting for 52 days over his detention without trial, Palestinian officials said. An Israeli prison official said that a large part of the protest seemed to be in response to a decision by authorities to hold prisoners from the militant movement Hamas in separate cells.
