                strike for 67 days. Janazrah, 43 and the father of
                three, is a Palestinian refugee living in Al-Fuwwar
                refugee camp. He has been held in Israeli administrative
                detention – imprisonment without charge or trial – since
                15 November 2015, and launched his hunger strike to
