Ahmad free!

On 13 January, the Israeli authorities released Palestinian prisoner Ahmad Zahran (42) from administrative detention – imprisonment without charge or trial. Ahmad had been on hunger strike for 113 days demanding to either be released or put on trial.

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network expressed its congratulations to Ahmad on his victory, describing his steadfastness and commitment to struggle as ‘an inspiration to all those around the world who support the Palestinian people and their just cause of return and liberation’.
