|Khader Adnan, a Palestinian prisoner who went on a 66-day hunger strike over his detention without charge by Israel, has been released following a deal reached in February. Israeli authorities freed Adnan on Tuesday after he refused food from December 18 until February 21 in protest over what he said was a violent and humiliating arrest at his home in the West Bank. Prior to his release on Tuesday, at least 1,200 Palestinian inmates of Israeli jails began an open-ended hunger strike, as rallies across the occupied territories marked 'Prisoners' Day.'|
