In a letter to the Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike, Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti wrote that Israel chose incitement and oppression. “Israel has the delusion that we will abandon our holy struggle and our just demands.”

In a letter that Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti published today (Friday) from his cell, he calls for the Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike to continue their fight. “Israel has the delusion that punishment and isolation will make us abandon our holy struggle and our just demands,” Barghouti wrote in the letter, which was published on Palestinian news outlet Ma’an.

“Israel cannot silence us, isolate us or break us,” he wrote adding that the mass imprisonment of Palestinians is a tactic aimed at “weakening and frightening our people and oppressing our abilities to fight the occupation.”

As reported yesterday by JOL, the Israel Prison Service is considering the possibility of bringing foreign doctors to Israel in order to force-feed hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners whose health is at risk.
