              <p>The Israeli High Court denied, Thursday, an appeal for
                the release of detainee <a
                  href="https://imemc.org/?s=al-Akhras" target="_blank"
                  rel="noopener noreferrer">Maher al-Akhras</a>, who is
                currently nearing death after 95 days of an ongoing
                hunger strike.</p>
              <p>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.</p>
              <p>The PPS added that the current health condition of <a
href="https://imemc.org/article/al-akhras-if-am-going-to-die-i-want-it-to-be-at-home/"
                  target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">al-Akhras</a>
                is profoundly serious, but he insists on continuing his
                strike demanding to be released.</p>
              <p>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.</p>
              <p>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.</p>
              <p>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.</p>
              <p>Besides al-Akhras, three other detainees are ongoing
                with a hunger strike demanding an end to their illegal
                Administrative Detention.</p>
              <p>Mohammad Zghayyar, 33, from Hebron, a married father of
                three children, was taken prisoner on April 19, 2020,
                stated the hunger strike nine days ago.</p>
              <p>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.</p>
              <p>Bassel Rimawi, 24, from Ramallah, was abducted on
                February 1, 2020, and started the strike eight days ago.</p>
