Detainees Ministry holds 'Israel' responsible for Khader Adnan's life
The prisoner Khader Adnan continues his hunger strike in light of a very deteriorating health condition.
Prisoner Sheikh Khader Adnan of Jenin continues his open hunger strike for the 47th day in a row in protest of his arbitrary detention.
According to the Ministry of Detainees and Ex-Detainees, Adnan's health condition is deteriorating; he has lost a lot of weight, is vomiting blood, showing signs of rash on his skin, and suffering from severe joint pain.
The Ministry held the occupation fully accountable for the life of Sheikh Khader Adnan, calling for intensifying the support campaign in solidarity with him, in light of the occupation's procrastination to respond to his demands.
A few days ago, Sheikh Adnan's wife told Al Mayadeen Net that her husband refused to undergo medical examinations. The detainee's lawyer, who visited him recently, described his health condition as "very poor".
His wife added that her husband "is freezing in a cramped insect-infected cell, with a closed window, and suffering from constant harassments and pressure aimed to stop his strike and to undergo medical examinations."
The occupation forces re-arrested Sheikh Khader from his house, in the town of Arraba, on February 5.
During the years in which he was detained, Adnan went on five hunger strikes, including four to protest his administrative detention. One of his strikes was in 2004 to protest his placement in solitary confinement, which lasted 25 days.
In 2012, he went on a second hunger strike, which lasted 66 days. In 2015, he was on strike for 56 days. Three years later, in 2018, his strike lasted 58 days. Then again in 2021, he went on a strike that lasted 25 days.
Through these repeated hunger strikes, Sheikh Adnan was able to gain his freedom and face his repeated arbitrary arrests, until he was re-arrested.
