Hana Shalabi, a Palestinian woman on hunger strike for 43 days in protest against her detention without charges by Israel, has ended her fast under a deal that will see her deported to Gaza.
"Hana Shalabi agreed to end her hunger strike following an agreement with Israeli authorities under which she will be exiled to the Gaza Strip," Issa Qaraqaa, Palestinian prisoner affairs minister, told AFP news agency on Thursday.
The Palestinian Prisoners' Club, which tracks detainees in Israeli jails, said Shalabi, a 30-year-old from the West Bank, would have to stay for three years in Gaza.
"She had to accept because Israel put pressure on her. But we are totally opposed to all deportation measures," said the minister.
Jawwad Boulous, Shalabi's lawyer, said he did not know when the deal might be implemented given her deteriorating health.
