Palestinian Youth Remain Camped Out On Hunger Strike For 17th Day
A group of Palestinian youth who began a sit-in and hunger strike in Ramallah 17 days ago say they will continue the strike until the Palestinian Authority releases political prisoners, as promised by the Palestinian President eight days ago.
One of the hunger strikers, Ma'ath Musleh, who has remained without food for 17 straight days, has grown so weak that he is barely able to speak.
