The participants also chanted slogans calling for standing firmly in support of the hunger strike till meeting the prisoners’ demands.
Palestinian prisoners have begun a hunger in Israeli jails on April 17 to improve their imprisonment conditions.
The hunger strike, led by Palestinian veteran prisoner Marwan Al-Barghouthi, has gained international attention, which made Israel further punish Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
