  Sami Janazrah suspends hunger strike, Majdi Yassin ends strike

On Wednesday, 11 May, Sami Janazrah 

Palestinian prisoner held in Israeli administrative detention without 
charge or trial, announced that he was suspending 
<http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=771484> his hunger strike for 
seven days subject to the outcome of the investigation for one week 
being engaged in by the military prosecutor following Tuesday’s Israeli 
supreme court hearing.

Janazrah said, through the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society, that during 
that time he will consume only liquids. He stated that if his 
administrative detention is resumed after the week, he will return to 
his hunger strike, which he conducted for 69 days.

Late Tuesday, 10 May, Majdi Yassin 
<http://english.palinfo.com/site/pages/details.aspx?itemid=78523>, 33, a 
Palestinian and Swedish citizen who has been on hunger strike since his 
arrest at the border crossing with Jordan on 26 April while returning to 
Sweden, also announced that he is ending his hunger strike; he is being 
transferred to a prison and his interrogation ended. He will be brought 
before a military court next Tuesday.

Several other Palestinian prisoners, including Fouad Assi, Adib 
Mafarjeh,  Muhannad Al-Azzeh, and Mohammed Qawasmeh, remain on hunger 
strike in protest of their imprisonment without charge or trial, 
isolation, or medical neglect. Mansour Moqtada, a seriously ill 
Palestinian prisoner permanently held in Ramle prison clinic, is 
continuing his liquid-only fast; the Palestinian Prisoners’ Commission 
is pursuing a demand for his early release on medical grounds. Moqtada 
is serving a life sentence; he was gravely injured by Israeli occupation 
forces in 2002 when he was arrested.
