18 days after the massive hunger strike led by Fatah terrorist Marwan Barghouti began, a number of Hamas terrorists, including Abbas al-Sayyid, who was the mastermind behind the Passover massacre at Netanya’s Park Hotel in 2002, decided to join the strike.

Ibrahim Hamed, a Hamas terrorist who operated in the West Bank, and Hassan Salameh, a senior-level member of the terrorist organization’s armed wing, also joined the strike. Both Hamed and Salameh are serving dozens of life sentences after they were convicted of murdering dozens of Israelis. Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine Ahmad Sa'adat also joined the strike.  

According to Palestinian assessments, between 1,000 and 15,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons are participating in the Fatah-led hunger strike.
