Palestinian 'day of rage' in support of prisoners

Palestinian 'day of rage' in support of prisoners

But after years of internal debate, the party leadership is to publish a supplementary charter that will formally accept the idea of a state in the territories occupied by Israel in the Six-Day War of 1967, a senior Hamas official has said. The U.S. president has said he would try to broker Israeli-Palestinian negotiations on a peace deal, despite repeated failures over the past two decades.

It describes Hamas as a "Palestinian national liberation and resistance movement with religious references", the official said.

On Sunday, Palestinian churches were expected to ring bells in solidarity with the hunger strikers.

"The Israeli prison service is trying to launch negotiations with groups of prisoners who are on hunger strike about their demands, except for (Palestinian leader) Marwan Barghouti", said Fares.

Palestinian prisoners began a hunger strike on April 17 in protest over conditions in Israeli prisons, calling for more family visits, better medical attention and an end to torture and administrative detention - imprisonment without charge or trial.

According to Palestinian figures, Israel is now holding more than 6,500 Palestinians - including 57 women and 300 children - at 24 detention centers across the country.

Palestinian detainees complain that they have been subjected to assault and torture at Israeli prisons.

Gaza is now totally relying on electricity purchased from Israel, as the Gaza Power Plant, which produced about 30% of the territory's electricity supply, was forced to shut down completely earlier this month after exhausting its fuel reserves and being unable to reload them due to a shortage of funds.

The Anzac Day Dawn Service Continues In Labuan
Mr Bradley said that, for him, observing the dawn service was a way to remember the wartime sacrifices of his family. It's one of Wagga's biggest events of the year - and a chance to thank those who have protected our country.

In the village of Silwad Palestinian protesters threw stones at Israeli troops manning a military tower, and soldiers retaliated by firing stun grenades and tear gas at them.

The new document's publication also coincides with the arrival of a high-level Palestinian delegation in Washington - President Abbas is scheduled to meet with US President Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday.

Hamas has traditionally been shut out of the peace process - it is designated a terrorist organization by the United States, Britain and the European Union; the group believes in the destruction of the Israeli state; and its current charter advocates violence to protect Palestinian territory.

He added that Barghouti would continue with the strike "even if he was alone, until he achieves the goal".

"This general strike is unprecedented in years", said Khalil Rizeq of the Union of Palestinian Chambers of Commerce.

The Salt Water Challenge, as it's called, asks supporters of the hunger strike to express their solidarity in a video before mixing salt in a glass of water and drinking it. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
