Revolutionary Leila Khaled Begins Hunger Strike

Icon of revolutionary Palestinian resistance and a member of the Marxist-Leninist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Leila Khaled, announced Saturday that she will be hunger-striking in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners, who have been striking in a historic, mass struggle for 21 days in Israeli cells. Khaled announced her strike at the prisoners’ support tent in Amman, Jordan, during an event held by the office of the Democratic People’s Unity Party of Jordan.

The open-ended hunger strike has seen over 1,700 Palestinian prisoners take part since April 17. As their health deteriorates, Israel has shown no signs of heeding the prisoners’ demands.
