Hamas Movement opined that the hunger strike suspension agreement which was achieved by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails after 41 consecutive days of open hunger strike proved the importance of national unity.
In a press statement on Saturday, the Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum hailed the striking prisoners for the great achievement and the Palestinian people for showing unity in their support of and solidarity with the hunger striking captives. “They managed to turn the issue of the hunger striking prisoners to an international public opinion issue”, he said.
An agreement was reached on Saturday between the hunger strike leaders and Israeli Prison Service stipulated the suspension of the hunger strike after prisoners’ demands were met.
Detainees and Ex-detainees Committee revealed that the agreement articles are going to be announced later on.
