Palestinian hunger strike leader Barghouti ‘filmed eating’

London: Israel's prison service has released a video purportedly showing the leader of a three-week-old hunger strike by Palestinian inmates eating in his cell, reports BBC.The service said Marwan Barghouti had been filmed consuming cookies in secret on 27 April and a snack bar on 5 May. It did not say how he obtained the food, but sources told the Haaretz newspaper that he had been set up.Barghouti's wife said the footage was "fake" and intended to break the morale of the hunger strike's participants. More than 890 prisoners have been refusing food since 17 April in protest at conditions in Israeli jails.
They have issued a list of demands including better medical services, more frequent family visits and an end to detention without trial.
The nine-minute surveillance video released by the Israel Prison Service on Sunday shows a man identified as Barghouti, who was convicted on five counts of murder by an Israeli court in 2004, moving about inside a cell. The first part, dated 27 April, shows the man opening a white envelope and inspecting its contents before sitting down in the cell's toilet and closing the door. The view is obstructed, but the prison service said the envelope contained cookies.
The second part, dated 5 May, shows the same man opening another envelope, walking to the toilet, and taking out what the prison service said was a snack bar. This time the door is left open and the man appears to unwrap the bar, break off a piece and bring it to his mouth. The man is then apparently shown eating a packet of salt.
"This hunger strike was never about the conditions of the convicted terrorists, which meet international standards," said Israeli Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan.
