    About 2,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails have ended their hunger strike after a deal was reached to improve prison conditions.

    The prisoners have been demanding an end to solitary confinement and detention without charge.

    The deal holds special meaning for the people in Gaza as they will be able to visit family members held in Israeli jails, something that they haven't been allowed to do in more than seven years.
