Health Condition is stable after Surgery at Ziv Hospital
Published on Tuesday, 28 February 2012 14:20
On Tuesday, lawyer Raed Mahamed from the Palestinian Prisoner's
Society, stated during his visit to Khader Adnan in Ziv hospital in
Safad that the prisoners health condition is now stable following surgery.
According to Mahamed, Khader Adnan suffered from severe abdominal
pain for two days before he was escorted to hospital for an
examination. The doctors found that Adnan had an obstruction in his
intestine, a consequence of 66 days of hunger strike and needed
immediate medical intervention.
Islamic Jihad leader suspended his hunger strike last week, following
the agreement between the societies lawyer Jawad Bolus and the public
prosecution in Israel that they will not renew his administrative
detention after he has finished the four month period, taking into
account the interrogation period from 17th September 2011, and are
now treating him until he has totally recovered.
Adnan's family said that they received a phone call at dawn from the
representative of the "doctors' organization for Human rights" in
which he said the emergency surgery that was performed on Adnan, due
to obstruction in the arteries of the stomach, was successful. Adnan
has left the operation room in the hospital where he was detained for a month.
The Palestinian Prisoners' Society called for the immediate release
of Adnan and condemned the Israeli authority for the administrative
detention and holds them fully responsible for Adnan's health and

Sheikh Khader Adnan, who ended his hunger strike last week after 66
days after Israel agreed to release him this April, was under a
night-long Gastrointestinal surgery at the Zeef Hospital in Safad due
to blockage in his intestines.
Former political detainee, Rafah Hamdouna, called on the Palestinian
Prisoners Society, human rights groups, and several medical and human
rights group to follow-up on Adnan's case, and to ensure that Israeli
allows Palestinian medical teams to visit him.
Adnan faced a near-death condition during his hunger strike but he
insisted on not halting his strike until Israel orders his release
especially since he is held without any charges.
Although Adnan agreed to begin taking food again last Tuesday, his
health is still at risk, due to the length of time he was without
food. Medics have warned that his body may reject the food, and he
could still die of organ failure.
