  Hunger-striker Khader Adnan to be moved to hospital

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The condition of hunger-striking prisoner Khader 
Adnan, who has been on strike for a month, is deteriorating and he is in 
serious danger, a prisoners' rights group said Wednesday.The director of 
the legal department of the Palestinian Prisoner's Society, Jawad 
Boulos, who visited Adnan in the Ramle prison's clinic, said that Adnan 
is only drinking water, without salt, sugar or any vitamins and that he 
refuses to undergo any medical tests.Adnan told Boulos that the Israel 
Prison Service visited him Wednesday morning in his cell and told him 
that he would be moved to a civilian hospital "by force" if 
necessary.The prison service said that according to their rules, a 
prisoner who has been on hunger strike for over 28 days, without taking 
medical tests, salt, or vitamins will be treated as someone in critical 
condition who requires transfer for immediate medical care.
Adnan said he refuses to be moved to any civilian hospital, and is 
currently being held in the solitary confinement.
His family held a press conference in Ramallah on Wednesday to highlight 
his plight, with his mother saying that he is barely able to move.
Adnan, a father of six children, was detained on July 8, 2014 and 
sentenced to administrative detention for the 10th time in his life.
In 2012, Adnan's 66-day hunger strike in an Israeli prison inspired 
hundreds of prisoners to take on Israel's policy of holding detainees 
without charge.
