'Israel' postpones Adnan's trial despite critical health condition
The Prisoners Club says today's court session of Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan ended without a decision being issued.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club confirmed on Sunday that the Israeli "Ofer" Military Court decided to set a new trial session to consider the request for the release of prisoner Sheikh Khader Adnan, who continues his open hunger strike for the 85th day in a row.
In a press statement, the Club said today's court session of Adnan ended without a decision being issued regarding the appeal submitted by the prisoner's lawyer against the previous decision, in which the court refused to release Adnan on bail.
The statement indicated that the session was held in the presence of prisoner Adnan via video conference, adding that a new court session was set for the Palestinian prisoner on May 10.

Earlier, Muhjat Al-Quds Foundation announced that the "Ofer" Military Court of Appeal rejected, for the second time, the request to release on bail Palestinian prisoner Sheikh Khader Adnan, despite the seriousness of his health condition.
The Foundation held the occupation government fully responsible for the life of the prisoner, warning of his death at any moment.
It also considered the occupation court's decision tantamount to a death sentence for the prisoner Adnan.
On its part, the Palestinian Ministry of Detainees and Ex-Detainees in Gaza warned of the consequences of the occupation's decision to prevent all forms of visits to Adnan, calling on international humanitarian organizations to stand up to their responsibilities in the face of the occupation's practices against the Palestinian prisoner.
Adnan is a spirited revolutionary who has long struggled against the occupation as a leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
He was arrested 12 times and spent a total of about eight years in occupation detention centers, most of which he spent under administrative detention. During these years, he went through five previous hunger strikes.
