Israeli court refuse to release administrative prisoner Khader Adnan
The 'Salem' military court refuses to release prisoner Khader Adnan who is on the 78th day of a hunger strike he began in protest of his arbitrary detention in Israeli prisons.
The "Salem" Military Court of 'Israel' rejected a request to release prisoner Khader Adnan on bail, despite his deteriorating health condition.
Adnan is on the 78th day of a hunger strike he took part in to protest his arbitrary imprisonment in Israeli prisons.
Mohjat al-Quds Foundation said the prisoner passed out twice during his court hearing, as he is critically ill.
The Foundation revealed that Adnan's wife, who was also present at the Israeli court, collapsed and fainted after realizing just how severe her husband's current condition is and was transferred to a hospital to receive treatment.
Mohjat al-Quds held "the Israeli occupation government fully responsible for" prisoner Adnan's fate," and underlined that "the alleged court's decision (of not releasing Adnan) equates to a death sentence for the prisoner."
A few days ago, the family of the prisoner, Khader Adnan, announced an open sit-in in front of Al-Manara Square in the center of Ramallah to protest the administrative imprisonment of Adnan.
His wife previously stated that Adanan is determined to prolong his strike until he is freed from custody, even if it cost him his life.
On Palestinian Prisoner's Day, the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine confirmed that Adnan's efforts embody "the spirit of challenge, persistence, and refusal to submit, and surrender to the terrorist occupier ('Israel')."
Occupation forces arrested Khader Adnan on February 5, after raiding his house in the town of Arraba, south of Jenin. Adnan was previously detained and he participated in 5 separate strikes.
In total Adnan was arrested on 12 occasions and spent a total of 8 years in occupation detention centers, most of which were under administrative detention.
Administrative prisoners are held in Israeli prisons without charges filed against them, and their detention is renewed arbitrarily as it nears its end, in March Israeli media reported that 971 Palestinians are held in administrative detention which is a record high for prisoners in this category.
