  Prisoner's health gets worse after 47-day hunger strike in Israel jail

October 18, 2018

The health condition of Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan has taken a 
serious turn for the worse, as his open-ended hunger strike has been 
ongoing for 47 consecutive days to protest his arbitrary detention in 
Israeli lock-ups.

Khader Adnan’s wife has expressed concerns over his exacerbated health 
status and the preplanned medical neglect pursued by the Israeli prison 
authorities against her isolated husband.

She added that Adnan cannot stand on his feet and moves on a wheelchair.

Muhjat al-Quds Foundation said prisoner Khader Adnan declared his an 
open-ended hunger strike some 47 days ago in response to being held 
arbitrarily in Israeli dungeons.

The foundation has railed against Israel’s torture tactics, including 
bans of visits by family members and attorneys, perpetrated against the 
hunger striker, in contravention of international laws and treaties.

In a letter leaked from the prison and published last week by Muhjat 
al-Quds Foundation, Adnan said that he had been locked up in a very 
small and isolated cell in Jalama jail for long weeks, during which he 
had been barred from visits by his lawyers and family and made to endure 
dire conditions of captivity.

Khader Adnan, from the northern occupied West Bank province of Jenin, 
was kidnapped by the Israeli forces on December 11, 2017 over 
allegations of anti-occupation incitement.
