I had to read the story twice to make sure they’re talking about Lebanon’s former prime minister Salim Hoss because a hunger strike at 88 is not really that easy to pull.

In fact, he’s apparently taking meds so it looks like a symbolic one-day strike to shed the light on the 800+ Palestinian prisoners currently staging a hunger strike. For those who did not hear the news, around 1000 Palestinian inmates are on an open-ended hunger strike, for 3 weeks now, to protest against the conditions inside Israeli prisons.
