  Detainee Zahran Continues Strike For 80th Day

December 11, 2019

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has reported that Ahmad Zahran 
42, imprisoned by Israeli under repeatedly renewed arbitrary 
Administrative Detention orders without charges or trial, is ongoing 
with the hunger strike for the 80^th consecutive day, despite his 
seriously deteriorating health condition.

The PPS stated that the Israeli Prison Authority is rejecting his 
demands, and that a court hearing is scheduled to take place on December 
19^th , to discuss an appeal filed by his lawyer, demanding the 
revocation of the new four-month Administrative Detention 
<https://imemc.org/article/hunger-striker-in-serious-condition/> order 
against him.

Zahran, a married father of four, is currently at Kaplan Israeli medical 
center, and is facing serious health complications, but determined to 
continue his strike.

The PPS also said that the detainee remains denied visits with his 
family, and even his lawyers are facing numerous obstacles whenever they 
demand sitting with him.

He was repeatedly transferred to various prisons and was placed in 
solitary confinement, in cells that are not fit for human habitation.

Zahran, from Deir Abu Mashal town, near Ramallah, is also a former 
political prisoner who spent 15 years in Israeli prisons and detention 

Since the beginning of this year, dozens of detainees held hunger 
strikes for various periods demanding an end of their arbitrary 
detention; there are around 450 Palestinians held by Israel under the 
same orders.
