Palestinian hunger strike deal ‘within reach’ – Middle East | Al Jazeera English

An agreement that would end the hunger strike of some 2,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails has been reached in Cairo, pending approval by strikers’ committee, a senior Palestinian official told Al Jazeera.

“An agreement was reached in Cairo today [Sunday] on a proposal to end the hunger strike of the Palestinian prisoners,” Issa Karaka, head of the Palestinian prison authority, told Al Jazeera.

“We are now waiting for hunger strikers’ committee to determine their position”.

Palestinian officials on Saturday said Egyptian officials were trying to mediate between the strikers and Israel.
