Palestinian terrorist prisoner Barghouti caught secretly eating during hunger strike

Palestinian terrorist prisoner Barghouti caught secretly eating during hunger strike

Barghouti is leading more than 1,500 prisoners in an open-ended hunger strike against the practice of medical negligence, solitary confinement, arbitrary attention, the denial of family and lawyer visits, and detentions without charge or trial.

Israeli prison authorities claim Barhgouti broke his hunger strike - now on its 23rd day - twice by eating cookies and a candy bar.

After decades of conflict, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have been imprisoned at one time or another for acts ranging from stone-throwing to carrying out attacks that wounded or killed Israelis.

"These measures to break the morale of prisoners show Israel's failure", she said.

Barghouti, a senior member of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas's Fatah party and a highly popular figure among Palestinians, is serving five life sentences over his role in the second Palestinian intifada, or uprising.

An unidentified IPS official told Israel's Channel 2 Monday the videos of Barghouti were obtained as part of an IPS plan to tempt the strike leaders to eat by placing food in their cells.

Protesters hold up portraits of Palestinian leader and prominent prisoner Marwan Barghouti in front of a statue of Nelson Mandela in the West Bank city of Ramallah on May 3, 2017, during a demonstration in support of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli jails. He said a possible deterioration in the conditions of the hunger strikers "would make the situation more and more complicated".

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement also called for a worldwide boycott of the chain for its "mocking of the prisoner leader and its involvement in the Israeli occupation". A spokeswoman for Pizza Hut International apologised for the post.

The initial post has since been removed from Pizza Hut Israel's Facebook page. It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the values of our brand.

Al-Lolo, the groom, said that "there is no better place to get married, amid the prisoners' hunger strike, than the sit-in tent". "We truly regret any hurt this may have caused".

Palestinians had started to call for boycotts of Pizza Hut before several activists from other Arab countries joined the boycott calls.

"Pizza Hut is ridiculing the prisoners' strike", activist Alaa Abu Diab wrote on Facebook, using the hashtag #boycott_pizzahut.
