  Administrative Detainee Huthaifa Halabiya Stops his Hunger Strike and
  Refuses the Israeli Intelligence’s Proposal

September 5, 2019

Today, 5 September 2019, Huthaifa Halabiya stops his hunger strike after 
(67) days. He stops his hunger strike after a serious deterioration in 
his health with a complete refusal to the proposal given by the Israeli 
intelligence department to extend his detention for another two months.

Huthaifa started his hunger strike on 1 July 2019, he only took water 
during this hunger strike and refused to undertake any medical tests 
during this period.

In the last few weeks Huthaifa’s health deteriorated as he started 
having several spasm attacks and seizures. His sight and hearing got 
weakened and as a result of this he was transferred to a civil hospital 
in the middle of August where he was given some supplements. He then was 
taken back to al-Ramlah prison clinic where he continued his hunger 
strike. He was transferred again to a civil hospital on 3 September 2019 
after he stopped drinking water and his medical condition required 
immediate intervention.

A medical committee met yesterday morning and decided to use forced 
medical treatment on Huthaifa in case he went into a comma to save his 
life. At the same day, 4 September 2019, the Israeli High Court looked 
into the appeal made by Huthaifa’s lawyer against his administrative 
detention order. During this appeal session the Israeli military 
prosecution and intelligence department were determined on their 
decision to renew Huthaifa’s administrative detention order for another 
two months ending on 7 December 2019. The ruling of the High Court has 
not been released unit now.

Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association assures its 
support to Huthaifa’s decision to stop his strike. We hold the Israeli 
occupation authorities full responsibility over Huthaifa’s life and also 
any other side-effects he may suffer from as a result to his hunger 
strike. Administrative detention policy implemented by the occupation 
forces is in violation to all international laws and customs and it 
amounts to a war crime.
