Al Qassam website - Israeli jailors stormed the wards of Palestinian prisoners in Askalan and confiscated their belongings on the first day of their hunger strike, the Palestinian prisoners’ association said on Saturday.

Lawyers of the association quoted prisoners as saying that the jailors confiscated the prisoners’ personal belongings including all electric appliances.

Meanwhile, Fuad Al-Khafsh, the director of Ahrar center for human rights, told the PIC on Saturday that the Israeli prison service (IPS) was exploiting all means to quell the prisoners and foil their hunger strike.

He said that the IPS was moving many prisoners from one jail to another without informing lawyers and blocking visits by those lawyers as part of attempts to abort the hunger strike.

Khafsh said that more prisoners would join the strike on Tuesday and by May all Palestinian prisoners would join the strike.
