Israeli military alert after Awawdeh back to hospital - Israeli media
Israeli media are talking about "an alert in the security and military establishments, after the transfer of the hunger striker Awadeh to the hospital."
Israeli media reported on Thursday "an alertness in the security and military establishments after the transfer of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoner Khalil Awawdeh to the hospital."
Channel 12 spoke about "an alertness in the security and military establishments after the transfer to the hospital of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoner, whose release was demanded by the Islamic Jihad (PIJ) at the end of the last operation due to the deterioration of his health."
The Palestinian affairs correspondent in the Israeli Channel 12 said, “The matter will have a great impact, of course, and it must be said that this was neither the first time nor the second time he has been transferred to the hospital. We are talking about Khalil Awawdeh, a Palestinian detainee from the PIJ, who has been hunger striking for 150 days."
He continued, "This is an Islamic Jihad practice that began with PIJ official Khader Adnan several years ago, and we witnessed several administrative prisoners who carried out very long hunger strikes with the aim of subjugating Israel and releasing the detainees."
The correspondent added, "The PIJ in the Gaza Strip is talking about the fact that Khalil Awawdeh's death will change the whole picture, and Israel will bear the responsibility."
The Israeli media confirmed that "the attempt to resolve the confrontation between Israel and the PIJ took place with a foggy intervention by Egypt," which said, "We will strive for his release."
He continued, "But if something happened to him and if he dies, given that he and Bassam Al-Saadi were the cause of the recent confrontation in the Gaza Strip, it seems to me that the PIJ in the Gaza Strip will find it difficult to control itself."
Human Rights institutions: Prisoner Awawda at risk of death at any moment
The Media Advisor for the Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission, Hassan Abed Rabbo, said earlier today, that "the Ofer Court decided to allow the lawyer of the hunger striker Khalil Awawdeh to visit him urgently today, accompanied by a specialized doctor, to examine him and prepare a medical report on his health condition, to be submitted to the court," which will consider his appeal next Sunday.
Human rights organizations confirmed that the prisoner Awawdeh "is at risk of martyrdom at any moment, in light of the occupation's refusal to respond to his demands to end his administrative detention, despite the seriousness of his health condition."
In turn, Qadura Fares, the head of the Palestinian Prisoners' Club, said that Awawdeh is living in dangerous health conditions that may take away his life, stressing that there are "Egyptian efforts being made to save the life of the detainee" and that "he is in a very critical health situation."
Fares indicated that Awawdeh's case is different from the rest of the prisoners who experienced the hunger strike because he reached the stage of an agreement to suspend his steps depending on false promises, as the officers took advantage of the severe hypoglycemia and his ability to focus to break the strike.
Palestinian and Egyptian sources stated that "an Egyptian security delegation is following up in Tel Aviv the issue of prisoner Awawdeh, with regard to his transfer to a general civilian hospital for treatment, in preparation for announcing the end of his hunger strike, provided that Egypt will work later after his health improves and he receives treatment on securing his release."
Earlier today, the Waed Prisoners Association said that the Israeli occupation bears full responsibility for the life of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoner Khalil Awawdeh, who has been on strike for 152 days in protest of his administrative detention.
"Incoming news from the Ramleh prison clinic about the condition of prisoner Awawdeh does not bode well, and the occupation is hiding real information about his health [condition]," the association said.
The association reported that Palestinian prisoners held in the Israeli occupation's prisons were in a state of anger and on high alert in light of "Tel Aviv's" reluctance to free Awawdeh or transport him somewhere he could be treated properly.
Yesterday, an Israeli occupation court held an unplanned court session for Awawdeh due to his deteriorating health condition. He was still in the Ramleh prison, however, without being transferred to a hospital.
The freedom of Awawdeh was one of the clauses of the Egyptian-mediated ceasefire between Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and the Israeli occupation, which took place earlier this week after several days of Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, killing dozens of Palestinian civilians and wounding hundreds of others.
The head of the political department in the Islamic Jihad Movement, Muhammad Al-Hindi, said on August 7 that "a formula for the Egyptian declaration of the truce agreement has been reached, and it includes Egypt's commitment to work for the release of the two prisoners, Khalil Awawdeh and Bassam Al-Saadi."
