RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Tareq Qaadan and Jafar Azzidine on Wednesday
suspended their 93-day hunger strike after a hearing held at a hospital
near Tel Aviv, the Palestinian Prisoners Society said.
Qaadan and Azzidine suspended their strike after an Israeli military
prosecutor said their administrative detention order would not be
renewed, the PPS said in a statement. Their current detention order
expires on May 21.
They will consider renewing the strike depending on the outcome of the
next hearing on March 6.
In Assaf Harofeh Hospital, where the prisoners are being treated, a
military judge said she would reveal the secret charges and evidence
against the men and issue a final decision at their next hearing, said
lawyer Jawad Bulous.
Qaadan and Azzidine have been held in administrative detention on secret
charges and evidence that even their lawyers have not been allowed to
Both men attended Wednesday's hearing in wheelchairs. They were due to
appear at Ofer military court near Ramallah on Tuesday but the hearing
was postponed as the detainees were too sick to attend.
