More than 200 prisoners in the Ashkelon prison, all of them security risk prisoners, began a hunger strike Tuesday in solidarity with the hunger strikers in Nafha prison. An additional group of 44 prisoners in the Ramleh central prison also joined in a solidarity hunger strike. The 23 imprisoned terrorists who were transferred to Ramleh prison last week renewed their hunger strike last Friday to protest the deaths of two fellow prisoners, Ali Mohammed Joapri, 30, and Mouhammed Haloua, 28.
