              <p>The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has reported
                that <a
href="https://imemc.org/article/two-hunger-striking-detainees-face-serious-health-complications/"
                  target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Ahmad Zahran</a>,
                42, imprisoned by Israeli under repeatedly renewed
                arbitrary Administrative Detention orders without
                charges or trial, is ongoing with the hunger strike for
                the 80<sup>th</sup> consecutive day, despite his
                seriously deteriorating health condition.</p>
              <p>The PPS stated that the Israeli Prison Authority is
                rejecting his demands, and that a court hearing is
                scheduled to take place on December 19<sup>th</sup>, to
                discuss an appeal filed by his lawyer, demanding the
                revocation of <a
                  href="https://imemc.org/article/hunger-striker-in-serious-condition/"
                  target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">the new
                  four-month Administrative Detention</a> order against
                him.</p>
              <p>Zahran, a married father of four, is currently at
                Kaplan Israeli medical center, and is facing serious
                health complications, but determined to continue his
                strike.</p>
              <p>The PPS also said that the detainee remains denied
                visits with his family, and even his lawyers are facing
                numerous obstacles whenever they demand sitting with
                him.</p>
              <p>He was repeatedly transferred to various prisons and
                was placed in solitary confinement, in cells that are
                not fit for human habitation.</p>
              <p>Zahran, from Deir Abu Mashal town, near Ramallah, is
                also a former political prisoner who spent 15 years in
                Israeli prisons and detention centers.</p>
              <p>Since the beginning of this year, dozens of detainees
                held hunger strikes for various periods demanding an end
                of their arbitrary detention; there are around 450
                Palestinians held by Israel under the same orders.</p>
