Prisoner Khader Adnan continues his open hunger strike for the 66th day in a row

The prisoner, Khader Adnan (44 years), from the town of Arraba, south of Jenin, continues his open hunger strike to reject his arrest for the 66th day in a row, in very difficult health conditions.

The lawyer of Addameer Prisoner Care and Human Rights Association stated, after his visit to prisoner Adnan, today, Tuesday, in the Ramla prison clinic, that he suffers from frequent fainting, visual and hearing impairments, in addition to numbness, severe pressure in the chest, spasms throughout his body, and vomiting of acidic juice with severe emaciation and weakness.

The lawyer added: Despite the very serious health condition of the prisoner Adnan, the prison administration refuses to transfer him to the hospital, and detains him in the Ramla prison clinic in very difficult conditions, and the warders deliberately disturb him and deprive him of sleep by storming his cell every half hour and keeping the lights on.

He continued: Despite his health condition, Adnan refuses to take supplements and vitamins and conduct medical examinations, and only takes water, calling for his freedom and an end to his arbitrary detention. The occupation also refuses that Adnan receive a family visit under the pretext that he is being punished.

Adnan had announced his open hunger strike since the moment of his arrest on the fifth of last February, after the occupation forces stormed his home in the town of Arraba, south of Jenin, and wreaked havoc on it before arresting him.

It is noteworthy that Adnan, a released prisoner, spent about 8 years in his arrests, which exceeded 12 arrests, during which he went through several hunger strikes, rejecting the policy of arbitrary administrative detention against him. He is the father of nine children and the only breadwinner for them.
