Sixty-three Palestinian administrative detainees have suspended the hunger strike they started 63 days ago.

President of the prisoners Club Qaddura Fares told Alquds.Com that the prisoners signed an agreement to suspend the hunger strike, and in return the administration will meet many of their demands. He added that all of the details will be announced at a press conference today in accordance with the desire of the prisoners.

Representative of the prisoners Mahmoud Shabana noted that he signed the agreement with the intelligence agency, the Israeli Prison Services and the Committee of the Prisoners movement, which included Abdul Jaber Fokaha, Mahmoud Shabana, Sufian Alohadin, Fadi Hamad, Fadi Amr, Ashraf Asfour, Dawood Hamdan, Jamal Hamamrah, Abdel Razek Faraj, and Salem Drdsawi.

The leadership of the hunger strikers addressed the Palestinian people in a letter which emphasized the importance of everyone coming together to support the Prisoners and force the prison administration to immediately implement the terms of the agreement. He said that the agreement followed a series of the meetings held between the leadership of the hunger strikers and the officials of the intelligence agency in the Israeli prisons. The letter explained that the leadership of the hunger strikers will not disclose the details of agreement until the hunger strikers have been discharged from the hospitals to which they have been admitted.

The administrative detainees in Israeli jails have been on hunger strike for 63 days ago to protest against the policy of administrative detention.

Most of the hunger strikers were transferred to Israeli hospitals due to their critical health situation.
