Hours after the Israel Prison Service documented senior level Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti eating in his cell, Palestinian sources claim that the video was fabricated in order to demoralize the security prisoners.
Hours after the Israel Prison Service documented senior level Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti, who is presently leading a hunger strike, eating in his cell, Palestinian sources claim that the video is fabricated.
“This is a fabrication,” Qadoura Fares, who heads the Palestinian Prisoners Club, said of the footage released Sunday. “This is psychological warfare that we expected Israel to wage against the strike.” He added that “the prisoners will not buy this account from the Israeli side and they will continue their strike.”

Fadwa Barghouti, the hunger-striker’s wife and a Fatah official, said the “Israel government’s fabrications” showed “the extent of the (Israeli) occupation’s decline,” according to the Ma’an news agency.
The National Committee for Supporting the Prisoners Hunger Strike “denied the claims of the occupation prison authorities that the leader Marwan Barghouthi had suspended his hunger strike and confirmed that the video footage was nothing but silly attempts to discourage the strikers, which the occupation used in 2004.”
