The ministry says the protesters sustained light leg injuries from low caliber bullets at Thursday's rally, during which some Palestinians threw rocks at Israeli soldiers.

The Palestinian Authority, which exercises limited self-rule in the West Bank, denies incitement and says that, in many cases, Israel has used excessive force in thwarting attackers armed with rudimentary weapons.

Earlier this week Israel released a video, claiming it showed the man in his cell breaking the strike by eating.

Some 850,000 Palestinians have been incarcerated since the Israel's occupation of their territories 50 years ago, Palestinian leaders say.

But for Israel, Barghouti is a terrorist.

The strikers demand more humane conditions, family visits allowed and proper medical treatment.

The activists will begin their fast on Sunday at 18:00 local time and end it at the same time on Monday, which marks Nakba Day, which marks the displacement of hundreds of thousands Palestinians as a result of the creation of the State of Israel in 1948.

Barghouti, a former leader of a militant wing of the Fatah political party, was convicted by an Israeli court in 2004 of heading attacks during a 2000 Palestinian uprising that killed five people. It is only about Marwan Barghouti's desire to gain political power and position himself to replace Abu Mazen.

It has many inside Israel, as well as one in the settlement of Maale Adumim in the occupied West Bank.

On Tuesday, the National Committee to Support Hunger-Striking Prisoners also called on Palestinians to boycott Israeli products, adding that Palestinian merchants should stop selling them.

Librati said "we thought it's important for the public to see the behavior of the hunger strike leader", but he did not address the privacy issue.

"Barghouti, if you are going to break your strike, isn't pizza a better choice?" "The only thing we received is a curt letter from the International Red Cross informing us that he sends us his best", she told Fairfax Media from Ramallah.

Also Wednesday, Barghouti's wife, Fadwa, sent an open letter to Pope Francis, urging him to speak out in support of the prisoners.
