  Israeli High Court Rejects Appeal To Release Al-Akhras

October 29, 2020

The Israeli High Court denied, Thursday, an appeal for the release of 
detainee Maher al-Akhras <https://imemc.org/?s=al-Akhras>, who is 
currently nearing death after 95 days of an ongoing hunger strike.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) said the court denied an appeal 
for his immediate release due to his serious health condition, although 
he is being held under arbitrary Administrative Detention orders, 
without charges or trial.

The PPS added that the current health condition of al-Akhras 
is profoundly serious, but he insists on continuing his strike demanding 
to be released.

It stated that, by denying the appeal for his release and his transfer 
to a Palestinian hospital, the Israeli court is practically sentencing 
him to death.

It is worth mentioning that al-Akhras has been abducted and imprisoned 
by Israel numerous times, including when he was taken prisoner on July 
27th, 2020, and was instantly slapped with a four-month Administrative 
Detention order, without charges or trial.

Before his current imprisonment, al-Akhras, a married father of four 
children, spent over four years in prisons, including many months under 
the arbitrary Administrative Detention orders.

Besides al-Akhras, three other detainees are ongoing with a hunger 
strike demanding an end to their illegal Administrative Detention.

Mohammad Zghayyar, 33, from Hebron, a married father of three children, 
was taken prisoner on April 19, 2020, stated the hunger strike nine days 

Mahmoud Sa’adi, 40, from Jenin, was taken prisoner on May 20, 2020, and 
started the strike nine days ago. He is a married father of eight 
children and suffers from Kidney disease.

Bassel Rimawi, 24, from Ramallah, was abducted on February 1, 2020, and 
started the strike eight days ago.
