Sheikh Raed Salah, leader of the Islamic movement in 1948 occupied Palestine, announced, on Sunday, that he is starting a hunger strike in an Israeli jail.
Lawyer Mohamed Ighbariyeh said Sheikh Salah updated him on his decision to go on an open-ended hunger strike in protest at being mistreated and locked up in an isolated cell in the Israeli Rimon jail.
Head of the prisoners’ committee in the Joint Arab List, MK Osama Saadi, denounced the Israeli crackdowns against Sheikh Salah both inside and outside prison.
“Such oppressive measures against Sheikh Salah while he is behind prison bars are just unacceptable,” said Saadi.
He spoke out against Israeli visit-bans slapped against Sheikh Salah.
Saadi expressed his solidarity with Sheikh Salah, saying his hunger strike is legitimate.
