Hunger-striker agrees to Gaza deportation for 10 years

May 23, 2013 4:29 P.M. (Updated: June 25, 2013 8:11 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) – Palestinian prisoner Ayman Abu Dawood on Thursday accepted an Israeli proposal to send him to the Gaza Strip for 10 years after he ends a hunger strike he started on April 14.

Abu Dawood notified his lawyer Fadi Qawasmi in person about accepting the Israeli suggestion. Qawasmi has visited Abu Dawood at Affula prison, according to the senior lawyer of the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society Jawad Bolous.

According to the agreement, Abu Dawood will be sent to the Gaza Strip three months from now.

For its part, the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society reiterated its opposition to deportation of Palestinian prisoners. It bases its position on the assumption that deportation is “the toughest punishment a Palestinian citizen may face.”

However, the group said it respects Abu Dawood’s decision.
