Some 4,500 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails sent back their food on Wednesday morning as part of a protest launched following the death from cancer of a Palestinian inmate which the PA blamed on Israeli medical negligence.

Palestinian prisoners declared a three-day hunger strike on Tuesday following the death of 63-year-old Maissara Abu Hamdiyeh, a Hamas member who was serving a life term for his role in a thwarted 2002 terror plot to blow up a Jerusalem restaurant.

An autopsy of Hamdiyeh’s body was scheduled to take place Wednesday at the Institute of Forensic Medicine at Abu Kabir in Tel Aviv in the presence of a Palestinian observer. The body will then be transferred to the Palestinian Authority for burial.

Hamdiyeh’s funeral was scheduled to take place Thursday in his hometown of Hebron.
