“Israel” to arbitrarily extend Khalil Awawdeh’s sentence
Nothing out of the ordinary: the Israeli occupation issues an order to renew Palestinian prisoner Khalil Awawdeh’s administrative detention for a period of 4 months.
The media department of Muhjat Al-Quds Foundation for the Martyrs, Prisoners, and Wounded announced that the Israeli occupation revoked its decision to end Prisoner Khalil Awawdeh’s arbitrary arrest.
Palestinian prisoner Khalil Awawdeh, 40, from the town of Idna in Al-Khalil has been hunger-striking for months, demanding his freedom robbed by the Israeli occupation.
The Israeli occupation issued an order to renew Awawdeh’s administrative detention for a period of 4 months, starting from 06/26/2022 until 10/25/2022, despite his highly critical health condition, according to Muhjat Al-Quds.
It is worth noting that Awawdeh is suffering from severe joint pain, headaches, vertigo, and blurred vision. He is also unable to move and is wheelchair-bound, knowing that he was transferred to the hospital a few times in one month only.
Brutal arbitrary practices
On Tuesday, Awawdeh suspended his hunger strike on the 111th day after the Israeli occupation pledged to end his arbitrary detention.
It is worth noting that the Israeli occupation neglected the prisoners' demands on purpose in a bid to have him reach a highly critical health condition with grave repercussions in the long run.
This is happening as 640 administrative detainees continue to boycott the Israeli occupation courts in protest of the policy of administrative detention.
There are 682 administrative detainees in the Israeli occupation's prisons out of some 4,600 prisoners. Reports show that there have been more than 54,000 administrative detention orders since 1967.
Among the administrative detainees, most of whom are in the prisons of Ofer (233), Al-Naqab (259), and Megiddo (89), are two female prisoners and a child.
