Palestinian authorities warn prisoner Khader Adnan is dying
Palestinian prisoner Sheikh Khader Adnan continues his open hunger strike for the 80th day in a row as his health condition continues to worsen.
The Muhjat Al-Quds Foundation warned that prisoner Sheikh Khader Adnan could die from his extremely dire health condition, noting that "he is emaciated, slipping in and out of consciousness, and is dying."
In turn, Adnan's wife, Randa Moussa, confirmed that the occupation is blocking the Red Cross and human rights institutions from visiting to check on his health, noting that there was no information about his condition after he was transferred to a hospital in the occupied territories on Monday.
Adnan continues his open hunger strike for the 80th day in a row. Muhjat Al-Quds considered that "this strike introduced a new chapter of battles for freedom, just as it did when he began his administrative detention in 2012."
The foundation pointed out that "Sheikh Khader is engaged in the longest open, individual hunger strike in the world, and refuses any kind of aid or medical examinations."
It confirmed that what is happening with Adnan is considered a slow execution and systematic killing, warning of his martyrdom.
For her part, Moussa confirmed that the "occupation is attempting to kill Prisoner Adnan, transferring him to a field hospital in order to isolate him [away from supervision].
She indicated in an interview with Al Mayadeen on Tuesday that based on the occupation's accusations against Adnan, his imprisonment should not exceed a few months, but he was sentenced to five years in an attempt to "deport him and break him."
A few days ago, the occupation's Salem military court rejected a request to release Adnan on bail, despite the seriousness of his health condition. The prisoner's family announced that it started an open sit-in facing Al-Manara Square in the center of Ramallah.
Occupation forces arrested Khader Adnan on February 5, after they raided his house in the town of Arraba, south of Jenin.
It is noteworthy that the prisoner was arrested 12 times, and stayed a total of about 8 years in occupation detention centers, most of which were spent under administrative detention.
