Palestinian hunger strikers moved to prisons with field hospitals

A second was shot by a settler on Thursday after his auto was pummeled by rocks and projectiles driving through a large demonstration near Harawa, claiming he was "about to be lynched" by the Palestinian protesters.

Masked militants told a news briefing in Gaza City that they call on the Palestinians to head to the borderline area between the Gaza Strip and Israel on Friday and clash with the Israeli soldiers stationed on the borders.

The striking prisoners warned that they may stop drinking water in case that the Israeli prisons' services and the Israeli government won't respond to their demands.

A Palestinian was shot dead and a journalist wounded during a protest march after they were shot by an Israeli settler after his auto was stoned near Nablus in the northern West Bank.

The prisoners, jailed for offenses linked to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, seek better conditions, including 20 TV channels, unrestricted books and magazines, air conditioning, a greater selection of items available for purchase in the canteen, family visits, the restarting of open university studies, public telephone use, and annual medical checks for prisoners.

Israel refuses to negotiate and has said prisoners' conditions meet all global standards.
