Hunger-striking Palestinian detainee in Israeli jails, Maher Al-Akhras,
ended today his hunger strike which lasted for 103 days, after he had
reached an agreement with the Israeli authorities to release him on
November 26.

Al-Akhras, a father of six who comes from the northern West Bank district
of Jenin, was detained on July 27 and slammed with a four-month
administrative detention order without any clear charges and based on
secret evidence not available even to his lawyers.

He immediately went on a hunger strike demanding his release from prison.

Attempts by his attorneys to have him spend the rest of his detention
period at a Palestinian hospital have so far failed to yield results with
the Israeli High Court insisting to keep him at an Israel hospital while
refusing to end his illegal detention.
