Former Palestinian hunger striker freed from detention

A Palestinian held in Israeli prison without charge, who fasted for 94 days in protest of his detention earlier this year, has been released, according to Hebrew reports.

Mohammed al-Qiq launched his hunger strike on November 25, 2015, to win release from detention. In February, Israeli authorities agreed to let him go on May 21 if he would end his hunger strike.
