#PalHunger | Prisoner Hamdan ends 3-month hunger strike

[ PIC 04/09/2013 – 04:24 PM ]


BETHLAHEM, (PIC)– Palestinian prisoner Ayman Hamdan, 32 from the city of Bethlehem, on Wednesday ended a three month hunger strike after a deal with the Israeli prison administration, his family said.

For his part, Daoud Hamdan captive Ayman’s brother told Ahrar Center for the Studies of prisoners and human rights that his brother suspended his hunger strike this morning, after the prison administration agreed to reduce his administrative detention term from six to four months. He will be released in December 22.

Daoud added that his brother is still held in Asaph Harovih hospital where he is receiving treatment, as he suffers from serious health problems due to his long hunger strike.

Fouad Khuffash, director of Ahrar Center, said prisoner Ayman Hamdan, launched his open hunger strike in protest at his administrative detention which has been renewed more than once.

Ayman has been held without charge in administrative detention since his arrest on August 22, 2012, and began a hunger strike on April 28.

Khuffash stressed that thanks to their steps and strikes, the prisoners succeeded to make the Israeli authorities meet their demands.
