  Three Palestinian Prisoners Continue Hunger Strikes against
  Administrative Detention

June 3, 2019

Three Palestinian prisoners are continuing their protests against their 
administrative detention in Israeli jails.

Thirty-five-year-old Hassan Mohammed Al-Aweiwi from occupied Hebron 
(Al-Khalil) has been on hunger strike for 64 days. Over this two month 
period, he has lost 22 kilograms in weight and is no longer able to 
stand as a result of exhaustion. He has been taken to the Kaplan Medical 
Centre for treatment.

The father of three was rearrested in mid-January after being held by 
occupation twice before.

His fellow prisoner, Thaer Bader from the town of Bayt Liqya in the 
Ramallah governorate is now undergoing the 17th consecutive day of his 
hunger strike. The 43-year-old has been detained since June last year 
and been held under administrative detention orders which have been 
renewed four times separating him from his wife and four children.

Thirty-year-old Ahmed Khader Al-Horoub, who is also from Hebron, has 
been on hunger strike for 14 consecutive days since he was re-arrested 
and transferred to the detention center of Etzion. He has previously 
spent two years in administrative detention.

Administrative detention is the arrest and detention of individuals by 
the state without charge or trial. It is applicable on a renewable 
six-month term.
