Terrorist Bilal Kayed, who was in administrative detention and is hospitalized at the Barzilai Hospital after hunger striking, has reached an agreement with Israeli authorities according to which he will be released from administrative detention and will stop his 70-day hunger strike.

Kayed's lawyers reached an agreement with the state that his administrative detention will not be renewed after six months unless new information emerges which supports his staying in jail.

The agreement will be brought before the High Court on Thursday as part of the petition presented by the terrorist against his administrative detention.

Kayed, 35, a resident of Asira a-Samilia, a village north of Shechem, was arrested during the intifada in 2002 when he was a member of the armed unit of the Democratic front. He was charged with a number of security crimes including attacks and attempted attacks and was sentenced to 14.5 years of jail.

In June the terrorist completed his prison time but was transferred to administrative detention for a half a year and consequently he started a hunger strike.
