  Hunger-striker in Serious Condition

December 9, 2019

Ahmad Zahran, a Palestinian administrative detainee held in Israeli 
jails who has been on hunger strike for 78 consecutive days, in protest 
against his incarceration without charge or trial, is in serious health 
condition and has been admitted to an Israeli hospital, today, said the 
Palestinian  Prisoner Society (PPS).

Zahran, 42, a father of four children from the Ramallah-district village 
of Deir Abu Mishaal, was detained last March and slammed with an 
administrative detention order,  upon which he was held in prison 
without charge or trial and based on secret evidence not available even 
to his lawyer.

He had spent a total of 15 years behind Israeli bars for resisting the 
occupation. He went on a hunger strike for 39 days earlier, this year, 
for the same reason, and has suspended his strike after he was told that 
his administrative detention will not be renewed.

However, his detention was renewed and he returned to the hunger strike, 
WAFA correspondence reports.
