Palestinian Prisoners Say Hunger Strike Over After Deal Reached With Israel

1

Palestinian security prisoners are calling off a planned mass hunger strike after reaching an agreement with Israeli prison authorities, according a Palestinian advocacy group.

“An agreement in principle has been reached between the prisoners and the management of the occupation’s prisons regarding their demands,” the Palestinian Prisoners Club announces in a Facebook post. The group said details of the preliminary agreement would be announced at a later date.

The prisoners launched a mass hunger strike last week to protest an Israeli crackdown on illicit cellphone usage among inmates.
