One of the more prominent (alleged) hunger strikers is Karim Younis, 59, a terrorist who murdered Avraham Bromberg in 1980. He was originally sentenced in 1983 to life in prison but Shimon Peres commuted the sentence to 40 years.
He is one of a handful of Palestinians prisoners who have been there since before Oslo.
Today, Arab media is reporting that Younis is getting weaker from the hunger strike. But they are adding a detail that Younis is the longest serving prisoner in the world.
