Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich praised the ending of the Palestinian hunger strike on Wednesday.

Aharonovich described how the strike was given top priority by the IPS and his ministry, and that from the beginning the strategy was "to preserve human life and strengthening our determined stance of not compromising and not allowing the prisoners to achieve their goals through the pressure of a hunger strike."

He added that the end of the hunger strike is an important "milestone" for the state of Israel in terms of its application of administrative detentions, which he called "one of Israel's tools for defending itself."
