550 inmates at Ofer Prison in the West Bank will refuse meals on Tuesday, according to the Israel Prison Service.

Israel Radio stated that the prisoners were conducting the strike in solidarity with Iman Sharawana, who was re-arrested by Israel after being released as part of the deal Gilad Schalit prisoner swap.

The Israel Prison Service challenged the claim, stating that the real reason for the strike was to protest changes in the prisoners' daily schedules implemented recently by the prison's new warden.
