The ongoing hunger strike among Palestinian Authority terrorists in
Israeli prisons could spark a third round of “intifada” violence
against Israel, Arab MK Jamal Zahalka said Saturday.
Zahalka spoke at a rally in support of the prisoners held in the
Israeli Arab city of Kfar Kana. He said Israel is now
experiencing “the calm before the storm,” but that everything could
change if a prisoner dies.
The hunger strike terrorists are demanding that Israel reinstate
privileges they enjoyed before the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit.
Zahalka expressed support for their demand, arguing that the
terrorists’ situation should have been restored to what it once was
when Shalit was released.
Ten of the hunger strike prisoners have needed medical attention.
In early 2012 prisoner Khader Adnan went on hunger strike. After his
health declined, Israel agreed to set him free. A female terrorist
used similar tactics and was released to Gaza.
Hamas threatened Friday that they would target Israel if any of the
hunger strikers die. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 05/05/12)
