Magen David Adom paramedics treated Sderot Mayor David Buskila outside the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem, who said his health was deteriorating as he entered the fifth day of a hunger strike, Israel Radio reported.

Buskila is protesting what he termed a lack of attention being paid by the government to his electorate, which suffers ongoing rocket attacks from Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

Buskila refused to be taken to hospital, holding out for his demands of increased government intervention in the issue.
