Palestinians took part in a rally in Gaza City on Sunday to show solidarity with Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.

Some 230 Palestinian security prisoners in Israeli jails have joined a hunger strike
that began last month to protest what they claim are unfair conditions.

The hunger strike, launched on September 27, began when 50 prisoners belonging to the Popular Front terror organization protested their isolation from the general inmate population.

The hunger strike has since spread to three prisons in the south and north of the country.
