Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Palestinian detainee in Israeli jails Alaa al-Araj has ended on Thursday his open-ended hunger strike after 103 consecutive days of starving and suffering in protest against his unfair administrative detention without a charge or a trial.
The Palestinian Prisoners’ Information Office announced on Thursday evening that al-Araj broke his hunger strike after 103 days, after reaching an agreement with the Israeli occupation authorities to cancel his administrative detention.
In September, Al-Araj was transferred to hospital after his health deteriorated, and he was held at the Al-Ramla Clinic prison due to deterioration in his health.
On November 2, Israeli Shin Bet sent Alaa for interrogation despite his serious health condition.
34-year-old Al-Araj is from Tulkarem, and he is a father of one child who was born while his father is still held inside the Israeli jails.
Al-Araj has been held under administrative detention – without charge or trial – in Israeli jails since 30 June and he has been on an open-ended hunger strike since August 9.
During his open-ended hunger strike, he has lost over 30 kilograms and suffers serious health problems as he can not stand up and has speech difficulties and pains in the abdomen and chest. He has blurred vision as well.
He has previously been detained by occupation and has served a total of five years in Israeli jails.
