Palestinian prisoner breaks 33-day hunger strike

RAMALLAH, Wednesday, September 1, 2021 (WAFA) - Ahmad Hamamreh, a Palestinian prisoner in Israeli detention, ended today his hunger strike which he had started in protest of his unfair detention without a charge or trial.

The Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS) said Hamamreh decided to break his hunger strike after he had reached an agreement with the Israeli Prison Service not to extend his detention term beyond 14 February 2022.

The policy of administrative detention allows Israeli occupation authorities to extend the detention of a Palestinian prisoner without charge or trial.

There are around 5,300 Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons, including 520 administrative detainees, according to institutions concerned with prisoners’ affairs.
