50th day of hunger strike, Khader Adnan’s health condition deteriorated


RAMALLAH, PALESTINOW.COM — The health situation of the prisoner Khader Adnan has seriously deteriorated as he continues his hunger strike for 50 consecutive days protesting his illegal detention, rights group said.

Head of the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) Jawad Boulos said Adana’s health situation has sharply deteriorated as he started vomiting blood.

He lost many of his weight and he started suffering visible wasting as he refuses to conduct any medical tests or to take vitamins, he added.

During his visit to Ramla prison, Adnan told his lawyer that he was isolated for 17 days in very poor detention condition in Jalama prison.

A court session is expected to be held on Monday in Salem military court over his case, Boulos pointed out.

40-year-old Palestinian detainee Khader Adnan has been on an open-ended hunger-strike for the 50th day running in protest at being held administratively, with neither charge nor trial, in the Israeli occupation jails.

Adnan, a father of seven children, was arrested more than once in Israeli jails where he underwent three hunger strikers. He is one of many former prisoners re-arrested and incarcerated for unclear reasons.
