RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Palestinian MP Ahmed Haj Ali ended his hunger strike after promises to release him in the coming days, according to Tadamon foundation for human rights on Monday.

Haj Ali has stopped his hunger strike, which has lasted for the past 15 days, after the Israeli prison services agreed to free him in five days upon the completion of his administrative detention. He threatened, however, that he would return to the open hunger strike if they didn’t keep their promise, Tadamon added.

The Israeli occupation forces arrested Haj Ali, 74, the oldest administrative prisoner, on 7/6/2011 after storming his house in Nablus, and held him in administrative detention.

There are two other detainees who are still on hunger strike in Megiddo prison for the past 28 days refusing their administrative detention. They are suffering from serious health conditions.

All the administrative prisoners in Megiddo have announced their hunger strike on Sunday and Monday to coincide with the International conference on Palestinian prisoners which will be held in Geneva during the next few days.
