The Israel Prisons Service said Saturday that ten Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike have been placed under medical supervision, Channel 10 reported.

Over 1,500 Palestinian prisoners are refusing food in protest of the Israeli practice of holding Palestinians in administrative detention without trial or having formal charges leveled against them.

Two of the Palestinians, Bilal Diab and Thaer Halahleh have been on strike for more than two months. The majority of the prisoners began their hunger strike on April 17.
