1,200 Palestinian prisoners enter 2nd day of hunger strike

Some 1,200 Palestinian security prisoners entered their second day of a hunger strike on Wednesday.
Prison authorities have stopped serving the convicted terrorists food, a source from the agency confirmed.
Asked whether staff were prepared to deal with a long-term hunger strike, the source answered in the affirmative, noting that it would take "two to three weeks of hunger strike" to reach a stage in which medical intervention was required.
"If there's a need, we can do that, even on a large scale," the source said.
The prisoners were all drinking water.
