Around 300 Palestinian security prisoners sent back their meals on Thursday in what Israel Prison Service officials say is a one-day act of solidarity with hunger strikers protesting administrative detentions for the past two weeks.

Sivan Weizman, spokesperson for the IPS said that the protesters said it was only a one-day action and denied reports that thousands of security prisoners were taken part in an open-ended hunger strike.

She added that the 90 to 100 Palestinian security prisoners who have been on hunger strike for the past two weeks are on medical observation but are not in dire condition and have not been taken for medical treatment at Israeli hospitals.
