[ PIC 29/08/2013 – 07:26 AM ]


RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) consented to captive Dirar Abu Sisi’s demands and ended his isolation, Fuad Al-Khafsh, the director for Ahrar center for human rights, announced.

He said that Abu Sisi ended his 13 days of hunger strike after the agreement was reached with the IOA, noting that a number of important demands were achieved.

He said that the IOA decided to transfer the detainee to Beersheba prison along with three prisoners who would be replaced once every three months.

Khafsh said that the agreement also stipulated that Eshel prisoners’ representative would visit Abu Sisi whenever he wanted and allowed him a telephone contact with his family once every month.

The agreement further stipulated allowing entry of food purchased by factions and the return of the eight prisoners, who went on hunger strike in solidarity with him, to their wards while a request for allowing him to attend the Friday congregation would be considered, the Ahrar director said.

Khafsh pointed out that the agreement was a big national accomplishment, noting that no Palestinian prisoner is now held in solitary confinement in Israeli jails.
