In parallel with the strike, local solidarity activities continue with the striking prisoners throughout the Palestinian governorates, while Arab and European cities and capitals witness other solidarity activities with the prisoners.

On Monday a Facebook post by a Pizza Hut franchise operator in Israel appeared to mock a hunger-striking Palestinian political prisoner in an Israeli jail, by suggesting that the jailed man eat their pizza.

Barghouti, a leader of the second Palestinian uprising, is serving five life terms after being convicted by an Israeli court of directing two shooting attacks and a bombing that killed five people.

The image was later removed from the Facebook page, though it was still found on the page of at least one local branch. "It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the values of our brand", Pizza Hut stated on the offical page Tuesday night.

Critics have accused Israel of using food as a "weapon" against Barghouti, but nothing indicates any coercion.

Many hunger strikers have also landed in solitary confinement or have been transferred multiple times throughout Israeli network of prisons, faced assault, nightly cell raids, confiscation of personal belongings, subhuman cell conditions, and have even been fined hundreds of shekels as punishment for refusing meals.

"This is a fabrication", Fares said of the footage released Sunday.

Convicted Fatah terrorist Marwan Barghouti is escorted by Israeli police into the Jerusalem's Magistrate Court to testify as part of a United States civil lawsuit against the Palestinian leadership, in January 2012.

She said, "We also know how low Israel can get, and all of its dirty games, manipulations and the blackmail of the families of the detainees".

Supporters of Marwan Barghouti say the video released earlier this week and purportedly showing him snacking is a fabrication meant to break the prisoners' morale.

Aarab Marwan Barghouti, the figurehead's son who launched a "Salt Water Challenge" to raise awareness of the hunger strikes, tells Newsweek by email that the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement will assist the campaign.

Hundreds of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails are now on hunger strike over their conditions. Those still shots were taken with a hidden camera through a hole in the wall of his cell.
