Prisoner Abu Hawash in critical health condition
Activists on social media post photos of Palestinian prisoner Hisham Abu Hawash after his weight reached 40 kilograms, sounding the alarms about his deteriorating health condition.
Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission warned today that the health condition of the hunger-striking prisoner, Hisham Abu Hawash, is deteriorating rapidly and has reached a very critical and dangerous stage.
The media spokesperson for the Commission, Hassan Abd Rabbo, announced that Abu Hawash is still being held at the Ramla Prison Clinic and that his life is in danger due to a shortage in fluid and salt in his body, knowing that his weight went down to 40 kilograms and his internal organs are shutting down.
Social media activists circulated heartfelt photos of Abu Hawash, who is continuing the battle of the open hunger strike in protest against his illegal administrative detention.
Earlier, the Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission announced that the Israeli occupation forces transferred the hunger-striking Palestinian prisoner Hisham Abu Hawash from his prison hospital to a civilian hospital for treatment.
The Commission stressed that the Israeli occupation’s Prison Service has deliberately transferred him to a civilian hospital and returned him on the same day or after several days, with the aim of exhausting him and discouraging him from continuing his hunger strike.
Abu Hawash, 39, from Dura, al-Khalil, has been detained since October 2020. He is also a former prisoner who spent a total of 8 years in occupation prisons.
The prisoner has previously received two administrative detention orders for a period of 6 months and is currently in an extremely critical health condition.
