Leila Khaled on hunger strike in solidarity with prisoners
Leila Khaled, a symbol of Palestinian resistance, has started hunger strike in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli prisoners since April 17.
People's Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Politburo Member Leila Khaled has started hunger strike in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisoners.
Al Watan Voice cited Khaled as saying the following: "We will not allow the elimination of our peoples. The hunger strike action is the front line between us and the enemy, a front where only empty stomach is a weapon. Even if we are hungry, we will show the enemy that the Palestinians will not raise white flag, and that they still have many things to learn from the struggle of these people."
The indefinite hunger strike launched by around 1500 prisoners in Israeli prisons under the lead of political leading figure Marwan Hasib Ibrahim Barghouti as a "strike of freedom and honor" continues since April 17.
