“The Prisoners’ Club does not know exactly when they started their hunger strike. The lawyers who are going to visit them will get more details,” spokesman Amani Sarahna said.
He said Muna Qaadan, a sister of Tareq Qaadan who has gone without food on and off for several months, was among those who joined the action. She had been freed in October 2011 under a prisoner exchange, but since re-arrested.
An Israeli official said three hunger strikers — Qaadan, Jafar Ezzedine and Ayman Sharawrna — were taken to hospitals for protective check-ups on Friday.
