Hamas prisoners in Israel said they will go on a hunger strike on Monday in protest of steps taken to "isolate" them, according to a report by Cairo-based satellite television station Alresalah.

The prisoners said they will continue the hunger strike if they find it necessary, according to Alresalah.

The strike was intended to end the isolation of the chairman of the senior body of Hamas prisoners since his health has allegedly deteriorated, the report said.
