Palestinian prisoner Awadallah al-Saidi, who had undertaken a hunger strike for 15 days in protest of his solitary confinement, from June 20 to July 5, was moved to Hadarim prison and out of isolation, reported the Ahrar Centre for Prisoners on July 20.
Saidi, who has been imprisoned since December 2, 2004, had been held in solitary confinement since March 2012.
Eyad Abu Khudeir, who has been on hunger strike since June 17, suspended his hunger strike on July 20, said the Wa’ad Association for Prisoners. Abu Khudeir’s prison sentence was completed on April 12 of this year, but he has not been released. He had been living in the Gaza Strip since 1999, where he is married and has three children, but was denied official family reunification status by the Israeli occupation. He carried a Jordanian nationality and is Palestinian. After his arrest on April 12, 2005, he was stripped of Jordanian nationality, rendering him without status. Wa’ad announced that Abu Khudeir will be released, over three months after the completion of his sentence, on Sunday, July 21.
