AMMAN —AlGhad— Over 1,600 Palestinian prisoners, some incarcerated for over 25 years now by Israeli occupation authorities, have entered their 15th day on Hunger Strike today, Sunday, demanding the suspension of military legal processing of Palestinian civilians and the annulment of the detention protraction clause, leading to the shutdown of occupation military courts altogether, effective Sunday.

There are currently over 7,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation detention facilities, 320 of them underage, 270 of those enduring long unreasonable sentences.

At least 4,000 in total, of all Palestinians in occupation prisons have been sentenced to incomprehensively extended times.

The media committee of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Hunger Strike movement, a sub-commission of the incarcerated and liberated Palestinian prisoners’ affairs commission and the Palestinian prisoners club, confirm the outcomes are a success of the movement’s goals, in collaboration with the strike support national committee.
