Hana Shalabi, an Islamic Jihad terrorist imprisoned in Israel who ended a 43-day hunger strike on Thursday, was expected to be deported to the Gaza Strip on Sunday, Palestinian news agency Ma'an quoted the PA Ministry of Prisoner Affairs as saying in a statement.

Shalabi stopped taking food after Israeli troops arrested her in the West Bank on February 16, but she agreed to three years' exile in Gaza in return for ending her strike and being freed. Shalabi is from Jenin in the northern West Bank.

Israel struck a deal last month with Khader Adnan, another Islamic Jihad member, persuading him to end his 66-day fast after assuring him that he would be released in April from his detention without trial.
