The Palestinian Detainees’ Committee has reported, Monday, that a political prisoner, identified as Anas Shadeed, 21, has suspended his hunger strike, and was moved to Ramla prison clinic, after reaching an agreement with the Israeli Prison Authority.

The committee stated that Shadeed, from Doura town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, is suffering from pain in several parts of his body, sharp headache and dizziness.
