The Voice of Palestine, the official PA radio station, children's program The Little Ones' Heaven, a song honoring the hunger striking prisoners is sung by a child who calls in to the program. Child: "Our beautiful land is a prisoner in a cage surrounded by wolves, My shaded garden was destroyed by the lumberjack and the dogs settled in it, O Jerusalem, my city, [With] my notebook, my pencil, and the fire of my rifle I will break the cage." The Voice of Palestine host: “Excellent." [The Voice of Palestine, the official PA radio station, April 29, 2017] The song was in honor of the hunger-striking prisoners (April-May 2017): Palestinian terrorist prisoners launched a hunger strike on April 17, 2017, which ended on May 27, 2017, after an agreement was reached. While the prisoners had issued a list of demands, reportedly only the demand to have the Red Cross reinstate a second monthly family visit for prisoners was agreed to. Nevertheless, the PA has claimed the development as a victory.
