#SaltWaterChallenge: Palestinian campaign to support hunger strikers goes viral


Last week, a Palestinian official said the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority (PA) will stop paying for electricity supplies to the Hamas-run Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, a local Hebrew newspaper said that Israel would not immediately cut power off the Gaza Strip, quoting Israeli sources as saying that Tel Aviv was anxious about the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Gaza and would seek to find solutions to the power crisis with the global community.

"As Christians, we are sent to work for the liberation of every human being, and for the establishment of a human society in which there is equality for all, Israelis and Palestinians", they said.

On Sunday, Palestinian churches were expected to ring bells in solidarity with the hunger strikers.

The clashes - on a day usually dedicated to anti-Israeli protests - came on the 12th day of a hunger strike by hundreds of prisoners in Israeli jails.

Israel calls them security prisoners - held for offenses ranging from stone throwing to carrying out attacks that killed or wounded Israeli civilians and soldiers.

Palestinian detainees complain that they have been subjected to assault and torture at Israeli prisons.

The political prisoners are demanding improved visitation rights for family members, better access to phone calls and medical care. "I will see to it that Hamas remains designated a terrorist organisation as long as it continues to launch rocket attacks against Israeli civilians, remains an Iranian proxy, and engages in other acts that threaten the United States and Israel".

"My father, along with 1,700 other political prisoners started the Hunger Strike for Freedom and Dignity in demand for human rights and humane living conditions in the prisons", the younger Barghouti said in the video.

Hamas remains deeply divided from Abbas's Fatah, and speculation has mounted over who will succeed the 82-year-old as Palestinian president.

The release of the document comes as Abbas is set to meet US President Donald Trump next week.

He added that Barghouti would continue with the strike "even if he was alone, until he achieves the goal".

The protests were organized by the National Committee to Support the Hunger Strike, which includes representatives of several Palestinian factions. "Nothing is working, negotiations are not working, the occupation is continuing". If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
