    The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has reported, Monday, that
    detainee Khader Adnan continues his hunger strike for 49th
    consecutive days amidst a serious deterioration in his health
    condition, in the Assaf HaRofeh Israeli Medical Center.

The PPS said the Adnan suffered a very serious health deterioration, and 
is facing a grave risk of losing his life.

PPS lawyer Jawad Boulos visited the detainee, on Monday morning, and was 
informed that Adnan developed two new complications; very visible 
yellowness in his eyes, which is typically an indication of a 
dysfunction of the liver, in addition to a much darker urine which could 
indicate a serious issue or dysfunction of the kidneys.

Boulos was informed that those conditions could witness further 
deterioration, and become irreversible.

The lawyer confirmed that Adnan is aware of the dangers, but insists on 
continuing his hunger strike without conducting any medical checkups. 
The detainee is only drinking water.

Adnan was kidnapped on July 8, 2014, and has since been held under 
Administrative Detention orders without charges or trial. He went on 
hunger strike for a week in January of this year after Israel renewed 
his administrative detention orders for the third consecutive time.

The strike comes in protest of this administrative detention, under 
which detainees are held indefinitely without charge or trial, as Israel 
has detained thousands of Palestinians over the years, by this procedure 
and for periods ranging from several months to several years.

The highest number of administrative detainees was during the first 
Intifada in 1989, when the number reached 2,000 prisoners.

Two years ago, Adnan held a 66-day hunger strike, also protesting his 
administrative detention, and only ended his strike after Israel agreed 
to release him in 2012.
