TEL AVIV – Families of Israeli prisoners held by Palestinian resistance in Gaza have threatened to begin a hunger strike after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to meet with them. اضافة اعلان

Jo 24 reported, according to the Hebrew newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, a hundred families of prisoners held in Gaza accused Netanyahu of working to divide their ranks "so he won't respond to their demands."

Ronan Tsour, the media director at the coordinating office for the families of prisoners held in Gaza, stated that the families ``decided to confront Netanyahu's attempt to divide them." Tsour emphasized that the military operation "contradicts efforts to reunite their families," according to the newspaper.

The families threatened to go on an indefinite hunger strike and gave Netanyahu until Saturday evening to hold a meeting with the war cabinet and work on releasing their sons. There was no immediate response from the Israeli government to the families' threats at the time of writing.

This comes as the Israeli army announced in a statement on Friday that three detainees in Gaza were killed accidentally while they were in the Shuja'iyya neighborhood east of Gaza City.

For seventy-one consecutive days, the Israeli occupation, with American and European support, has continued its aggression on Gaza, with its planes targeting the vicinity of hospitals, buildings, towers, and the homes of Palestinian civilians, destroying them above their heads.
