Ruti Hasno, widow of Avraham Hasno, who was murdered in a terrorist shooting attack, collapsed Tuesday in the protest tent outside the Prime Minister's Residence.

Bereaved families and local council heads from Judea and Samaria announced a hunger strike against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu over the weekend until the Cabinet approves a budget for necessary security upgrades and bypass roads in Judea and Samaria.

Hasno, who has been on hunger strike for three days, received medical treatment at the scene and was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

United Hatzalah Spokesperson and EMT Moti Elmaliach, who was one of the first responders who treated the patient said: "According to reports by those nearby, the woman has been on a hunger strike for three days now. She complained of severe weakness and chest pains. We took her vitals signs and treated her at the protest tent until the ambulance arrived to transport her to the hospital."

Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan said that it is "very unfortunate that a bereaved family has to be brought to such a pass in order to save lives. It is the government's job to prevent the next attack."

"I call on the prime minister to come to his senses, to set a Cabinet meeting for tomorrow, and to pass a real budget for the bypass roads and the security components," Dagan added.

MK Oren Hazan (Likud) announced Sunday that he will join the hunger strike of the bereaved families and local council heads in the protest tent opposite the Prime Minister's residence.
