Detained Journalist, Rimawi, Suspends Hunger Strike

The detained Palestinian journalist, Ala’ Rimawi, has suspended the hunger strike, Thursday, after reaching an agreement for his release next month.

Khaled Zababra, a lawyer representing Rimawi, said the agreement was reached after Israel agreed to end his arbitrary Administrative Detention.

He added that an Israeli court decided to reduce the Administrative Detention order against Rimawi to 45 days starting from the day he was abducted by the soldiers nearly more than weeks ago. His current Administrative Detention order ends on June 6th, 2021.

It is worth mentioning that Rimawi, a married father of five, is a former political prisoner who was frequently abducted and imprisoned by Israel, spending more than twelve years in prisons, detention centers, and interrogation facilities.

He declared a hunger strike immediately after he was abducted on Wednesday, April 21st, 2021.
