300 jailed African migrants hunger striking since Tuesday

About 300 African migrants detained in the Saharonim facility in the Negev have refused their breakfasts for the third day, in protest of their arrest without a trial.


Due to this development, the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) now treats their protest as a hunger strike. However, the IPS decided not to remove food products purchased by the detainees in the canteens from their cells. (Raanan Ben-Zur)
