Ranking Islamic Jihad official Khader Adnan has ended his 65-day hunger strike after the State Prosecutor announced that under current circumstances, it would not seek to renew his administrative detention.
According to the announcement, the State will not extend Adnan’s detention if no significant new material is added to the case by April 17, the day his current detention order expires.
