Solidarity hunger strike brings end to 570-day isolation of Palestinian prisoner
This week, more than one hundred Palestinian political prisoners ended a hunger strike in solidarity with Nahar al-Saadi, a Palestinian prisoner who was held in solitary confinement for more than 570 days by Israel.
The action resulted in an agreement between the leadership committee of the striking prisoners and the Israeli Prison Service. It brought the solidarity hunger strike, which began on 9 December, to an end on 17 December.
The Israeli Prison Service gave in to the hunger strikers’ demands to end al-Saadi’s isolation and respect his right to family visits.
After the agreement, al-Saadi suspended his own one-month-long hunger strike and was finally allowed to speak with his mother by telephone.
