Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails end four-day hunger strike after meeting their demands

RAMALLAH, Some 60 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails ended today a hunger strike that lasted for four days after the Israel Prisons Service (IPS) agreed to their demands, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS).

It said the prisoners affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) ended their hunger strike after the IPS agreed to end the solitary confinement of a fellow prisoner, move him to another prison to be with fellow PFLP prisoners, and to allow him family visits.

The IPS also agreed to end punitive steps against the striking prisoners enforced after they went on strike, said the PPS.
