2 minutes
The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) has reported that detainee 
Khader Adnan 
who has been holding a hunger strike for fifty consecutive days, is 
facing serious health complications.

The head of the Legal unit of the PPS, attorney Jawad Boulos, said Adnan 
suffered a very serious weight loss, and is facing constant fatigue, 
vomiting blood, in addition to having problems in his left eye.

Boulos managed to visit Adnan, Monday, at the Ramla prison, and said the 
detainee informed him that he is still refusing medical checkups, 
vitamins and boosters, adding that his strike continues until he is 
freed again.

Adnan told Boulos that Israel has stripped him of his freedom, yet 
again, under vague and unrealistic allegations, and added that he is 
being held under dire conditions in al-Jalama prison.

Adnan also said that the prison administration held him in solitary 
confinement for seventeen consecutive days in a very small cell, with a 
broken toilet seat, and filled with bugs and insects.

It is worth mentioning that, in the period between 2012 and this year, 
2018, Adnan held three hunger strike demanding an end to his arbitrary 
Administrative Detention, without charges or trial.

In 2012, Adnan held a hunger strike for 66 days, and in 2015, he went on 
strike for 54 days <http://imemc.org/article/71810/>.

Adnan, 40, from the northern West Bank governorate of Jenin, spent at 
least 8.5 years in Israeli prisons, after he was abducted and detained 
by the soldiers eleven times.

He is a married father of seven children, the oldest, Ma’ali, is ten 
years of age, and the youngest, Mariam, is only 18 months.
