Prisoners convicted of security-related offenses in Israel go on hunger strike

Prisoners in a number of Israeli jails who were convicted of security-related offenses launched a 48-hour hunger strike on Thursday in solidarity with three administrative detainees who have been hospitalized due to the deterioration of their health. On Tuesday, Israel's Supreme Court rejected an appeal by one of the three, Malek al-Kadi, who is in the intensive care unit of Wolfson Hospital. It ruled that he is a detainee so he cannot be released.
