Two hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners in an Israeli jail ended their fast today, while two others were hospitalised.
Tarek Qaadan and Jafar Ezzeldeen have started eating after fasting since December 3, a prison spokeswoman said.
Lawyer Jawad Bolus said the two ended their hunger strike because the prosecutor assured them that he would not ask that their detention be extended during a hearing due in March.
All four are held on administrative detention, a system under which prisoners can be held for months without charges.
The prison claimed that the two other prisoners on hunger strike had been hospitalised to prevent their health from deteriorating but Israeli media said that Samer Issawi's condition had taken a turn for the worse.
Mr Issawi and Ayman Sharawneh were released in 2011 as part of a prisoner swap. Both were rearrested last year and have staged lengthy hunger strikes since then.
