Gaza, ALRAY - Palestinian detainees in Israeli occupation prisons have suspended their hunger strike after the Israeli occupation acquiesced to their demands to reverse the arbitrary and punitive measures imposed against them.
The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs and the Palestinian Prisoners Club said in a joint statement on Wednesday evening that Palestinian detainees decided to halt their hunger strike after the Israeli occupation ended its harsh measures against them.
On 14 February, Palestinian detainees in Israeli occupation prisons began a series of mass civil disobedience actions to protest against the punitive measures ordered by the extremist Israeli minister Itamar Ben-Gvir.
As part of their protest actions, 2,000 Palestinian detainees had decided to go on an open-ended hunger strike on the first day of the Muslim holy of Ramadan, which began Thursday.
The repressive measures included passing racist laws targeting Palestinian detainees, denying them access to medical treatment, reducing shower time, and moving many of them to solitary confinement.
The Israeli occupation is holding at least 4,780 Palestinian detainees, including 30 women and around 160 children, according to Palestinian prisoners' rights organizations.
