Over 800 Palestinian children from Jerusalem were arrested in 2018; this number included two administrative detainees. The year ended with at least 41 detained children from occupied East Jerusalem.
Sixty-one year-old prisoner Hossam Ruzza, from Nablus, suspended his open hunger strike on Wednesday, 1st May 2019, after 43 days, as confirmed Addameer lawyer.
Thus, the prisoners' hunger strike comes to an end, achieving important demands for the prisoners’ struggle and, putting an end to the latest wave of escalation against the prisoners. An escalation which began with the recommendations of the Erdan committee, seven months ago.
The Palestinian prisoners’ hunger strike is still ongoing to this moment, as confirmed by Addameer on Tuesday, 9 April 2019.
