Two Palestinian security prisoners said Sunday they were continuing to refuse food despite the recent agreement between Israel and the inmates to end the hunger strike in Israeli prisons.

Mahmoud Sarsak said he has been on hunger strike for the past 80 days, while Akram Al-Rikhawy has been fasting for 59 days.

The two prisoners sent a letter to the Ramallah-based Addameer Human Rights Association in which they appealed to the Palestinian Authority leadership and Hamas to intervene to save their lives.

The two men said they were being treated at a the Ramle Prison hospital and that they were determined to continue with their hunger strike until they are freed.
