Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday welcomed the agreement that led to the end of the Palestinian prisoner hunger strike, praising Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch and head of Prison Services Commissioner Aharon Franco for the “determined and professional way” in which they ended the strike.

Before a meeting with Italian Senate President Pietro Grasso, Netanyahu said “we staked out a clear policy that brought about this important result, and we will continue now to add aditional measures that will ensure that there will be fewer prisoner strikes in the future.”
