Simultaneously, Palestinians staged a protest in support of prisoner Abu Atwan in front of his family's home in the town of Tabqa, south of Al-Khalil, near the city of Dura.
Ghadanfar began his hunger strike on May 5, and has refused all food, including vitamins and supplements.
The Palestinian prisoner has been arrested and imprisoned by “Israel” four times since he was 19 years old, for a total of over seven years in custody. Three of his four detentions were administrative incarceration terms, including the most recent one, totaling nearly five years in prison.
