Bakr: Akhras’s life is in big danger
RAMALLAH, (PIC) - November 1, 2020

Qadri Abu Bakr, the head of the Prisoners and Ex-prisoners Affairs
Authority, warned on Sunday of the seriousness of Akhras’s health condition.

He pointed out that Akhras began to gradually lose his vision and hearing
abilities and became unable to speak, other than dangers threatening his
vital organs.

Bakr said that Akhras is approaching the 100th day of his hunger strike,
and the Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) are still refusing and
procrastinating his release and insist that Akhras must complete his
current administrative detention.

He added that Akhras refused to end the strike unless IOA immediately
canceled his administrative detention, or transferred him to a Palestinian
hospital in West Bank. “He knows that IOA is stalling and can extend his
detention again”, Baker commented.

The leader clarified that the European Union and human rights organizations
began to take action and demand IOA to end the suffering of Akhras.
Although the demands came late, they are important at this time, he added.

He said, “Palestinian efforts have not stopped in supporting Akhras in this
heroic battle by following his condition at the highest levels.”

Bakr charged that the occupation courts stage mock trials, and are nothing
but a tool in the hands of the Israeli Shin Bet, which is intransigent in
releasing Akhras even though his life is at stake.
