Israel Prison Service reaches agreement with terrorist hunger-striker

A security prisoner belonging to the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization has ended the nine-day hunger strike he launched in protest against harsher prison conditions, imposed following the Gilboa Prison Break several weeks ago – following an agreement concluded between the Israel Prison Service and himself.
Responding to the news, MK Itamar Ben-Gvir said, “We don’t negotiate with terrorism – we destroy it. If we set political calculations to &#111ne side for a moment, it becomes apparent that the government is continuing its policy of national security bankruptcy without a drop of self-respect, and is handing a prize to Hamas and capitulating to terrorist murderers.
“Internal Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev promised to reform the law enforcement institutions,” Ben-Gvir added, “but what he is doing instead is destroying them. He should now resign, and today should be declared a day of national mourning.”
