  Detainee Khader Adnan Continues Hunger Strike For 40th Day

October 12, 2018

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) has reported that detainee 
Khader Adnan 
is ongoing with the hunger strike he started 40 days ago, protesting his 
continued imprisonment.

The detainee, from Arraba town, south of the northern West Bank city of 
Jenin, started the strike on September 2^nd , and has been denied visits 
with his lawyer since September 17^th .

Although he has not been sentenced by an Israeli court since his 
abduction on December 11^th , 2017, Khader is facing “incitement charges.”

He has been frequently placed in solitary confinement, while the Israeli 
prison authority also confiscated his books, pens, paper, radio and 
newspapers, in addition to preventing him from communicating with other 

His wife said that Adnan stated in a letter, which was smuggled from 
prison, that he is facing serious health complications, and cannot move 
around without a wheelchair.

In addition, human and prisoner rights groups in Palestine have called 
on the Red Cross to intervene, and pressure Israel into abiding by 
International Law and all related human rights treaties.

Adnan has previously held two major hunger strikes; one was a 66-day 
long hunger strike, in 2012, and another lasted 55 days, in 2015, in 
protest of his administrative detention, without charges or trial.

He is considered a senior political leader of the Islamic Jihad movement 
in occupied Palestine.
