"Mr Napier called on anti-apartheid activists around the world who have participated in hunger strikes to up their game and do everything possible to exert pressure on Israel on behalf of the prisoners".

The most prominent demands include: ending the policy of administrative detention, ending the policy of solitary confinement, ending the policy of banning families' and lawyers' visits, ending the policy of medical negligence and other legitimate demands.

The radio estimated that almost 1,800 prisoners are now participating in the strike.

The hunger strikers are drinking water and are taking twists of salt to stop their bodies from shutting down.

Earlier this week, Israel produced footage it said showed him secretly breaking his fast in his cell.

Since 1967, 72 Palestinian political prisoners have died as a result of torture by Israeli prison authorities, according to Jerusalem-based prisoners' rights group Addameer.

But for Israel, Barghouti is a terrorist. It is led by a jailed leader of the Palestinian Fatah movement, Marwan Barghouti.

People were asked to leave the water. "They (the State Parks department) are advising you exit the water in a calm manner". A great white shark attempted to bite into a diving cage this week. "Please do not enter the water", the deputy warned.

Librati said "we thought it's important for the public to see the behavior of the hunger strike leader", but he did not address the privacy issue.

More than 1500 Palestinian prisoners have been on hunger strike since April 17, Palestinian Prisoners' Day.

Barghouti, a senior member of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas's Fatah party and a highly popular figure among Palestinians, is serving five life sentences over his role in the second Palestinian intifada, or uprising.

At the time, Celtic Fans for Palestine insisted that "Radical politics and Irish politics have always existed in Celtic Park". The local franchisee in the country removed it immediately and the relationship with the agency that posted it was terminated, and we truly regret any hurt this may have caused.

Barghouti's wife, Fadwa, has denounced the video, claiming it was "fabricated" and is part of an Israeli strategy to discredit her husband.

Spread across several prisons in Israel, Palestinian prisoners embarked on the risky journey of an open-ended fast to pressure Israel - which is responsible under global law for the well-being of all persons in its custody - to improve prison conditions.
