Prisoners call off hunger strike in Israeli prison a day after starting it


RAMALLAH, Tuesday, September 03, 2019 (WAFA) - More than 200 Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli jail of Rimon ended today their hunger strike that they started yesterday in protest against installation of jamming devices in the prison, which they fear cause cancer, and demanding better conditions for women prisoners in nearby Damon prison, according the Detainees and Ex Detainees Commission.

Qadri Abu Baker, the head of the Commission, told WAFA that negotiations between the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) and representatives of the prisoners from several prisons have been successful, which led to ending the strike after the IPS accepted prisoners‘ demands.
