PA Prisoner Group: No Deal Yet

Fares Kadoura, the chairman of an organization for Palestinian Authority prisoners, said, Monday morning, that no deal has been reached to end the hunger strike by security prisoners over administrative detention and lack of family visits.

Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, Kadoura said that even if an agreement is drafted, the prisoners - and nobody else - are the ones who have to approve it. It was reported, Sunday, that Hamas had reached agreement with Israel through Egyptian mediation.
