RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Tareq Qaadan and Jafar Azzidine on Wednesday suspended their 93-day hunger strike after a hearing held at a hospital near Tel Aviv, the Palestinian Prisoners Society said.

Qaadan and Azzidine suspended their strike after an Israeli military prosecutor said their administrative detention order would not be renewed, the PPS said in a statement. Their current detention order expires on May 21.

They will consider renewing the strike depending on the outcome of the next hearing on March 6.

In Assaf Harofeh Hospital, where the prisoners are being treated, a military judge said she would reveal the secret charges and evidence against the men and issue a final decision at their next hearing, said lawyer Jawad Bulous.

Qaadan and Azzidine have been held in administrative detention on secret charges and evidence that even their lawyers have not been allowed to review.

Both men attended Wednesday's hearing in wheelchairs. They were due to appear at Ofer military court near Ramallah on Tuesday but the hearing was postponed as the detainees were too sick to attend.

Heal your bodies now dear brothers. Know that our thoughts & prayers are with both of you & also with ALL of those who remain on hunger strike. Justice will prevail in the end. The world is also watching & should know there are right wing Israeli's, among them ex Parliament Member Michael Ben Ari, demonstrating in front of Ofer Military prison, calling to ignore all demands by Palestinian hunger strikers and let them die.. with a HEBREW BANNER stating "Hunger Strike means Saving Money (on food)"

More imprisoned terrorists are on hunger strike - more prison administration can save on food. It is very economical way to run the prison system in the time of world economic crisis.

If they want to starve themselves, let them. The number of days claimed is a medical joke.
