Israel Reneges on Hunger Strike Agreement, Palestinian Prisoners May Renew Strike

• http://www.commondreams.org, Common Dreams staff
 Within two weeks after an agreement reached between Palestinian hungers strikers in Israeli prisons, Israel has begun to renege on the deal.
 
Days after announcing the end of the strike, Israel renewed administrative detention orders for 30 prisoners, according to Palestinian prisoners minister Issa Qaraqa.

Up to 2,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israel had ended a hunger strike on May 14 after Israeli authorities agreed to allow visits from relatives in Gaza, transfer of detainees out of solitary confinement, and a curb to administrative detention, a procedure that allows suspects to be held without charge or trial indefinitely.

Accusing Israel of already going back on its promises, prisoners have now begun to threaten the prospects of a renewed hunger strike.
