  Alert: Khader Adnan re-arrested by occupation forces


Palestinian media reported that Khader Adnan, former long-term hunger 
striker and freed former administrative detainee, was re-arrested by 
occupation forces in Jenin on July 8.

Occupation forces have not laid any formal charges against him, but said 
he was arrested for "activities that threaten regional security," 
according to Palestine News Network. Adnan, a baker from Jenin, launched 
his hunger strike in February 2012, garnering international support and 
attention that led to his release from administrative detention, where 
he had been held without charge or trial. The iconic graphic image of 
Adnan by Palestinian artist Hafez Omar covered the streets of Palestine 
and appeared in protests around the world.

Since his release, he has been a leading figure in supporting 
Palestinian prisoners' struggle for freedom and justice, including 
various hunger strike campaigns.

This arrest came amid 31 arrests of Palestinians in Jerusalem, and 
following the arrests of over 830 Palestinian political prisoners since 
June 12. Al-Mayadeen TV reported on the afternoon of June 8 that it is 
an Israeli official decision to round up the cadres of Hamas, Islamic 
Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

While occupation forces are sweeping the West Bank with violent raids 
and arrests, they have announced "Operation Protective Edge" in Gaza, 
which has so far taken the lives of at least 23 Palestinians, 9 on July 
7 and 14 so far on July 8, including children killed when a massive bomb 
was dropped on the Qaware' family home in Beit Hanoun.
