Palestinian Prisoner: Adal Moussa Continues his Hunger Strike for 34 Consecutive Days

S.K | DOP -

The Palestinian detainee, Adal Moussa continues his open hunger strike for 34 days in a row as an act of protest of his administrative detention.

Adal Musa, 34, who is being held in solitary confinement at Ofer Israeli Prison, started a hunger strike on the second day of his arrest on August 7, according to a spokeswoman for the Detainees and Ex-detainees Affairs Authority named Hassan Abd Rabbo.

Last Thursday, Ahmed Moussa, 44, Adal’s brother, completed his 31-day hunger strike after striking a deal to essentially shorten his administrative detention to four months from the day of his arrest and release him on December 6 of the following year.

The Palestinian detainee, 41-year-old Bethlehem resident Jawad Jawarish while waiting to be able to visit his two brothers who are being held in the occupation jails, Abdullah and Orabi, he continues his open hunger strike for the eighth time in a row.

Jawarish has been detained since 2002 and was allegedly prevented from seeing his two brothers 20 years ago under the guise of a “security prohibition.” After years of neglect, he now asks to meet them following their detention.

Jawarish has already been isolated and is currently serving a lifelong imprisonment inside Israeli jails. His oldest daughter, who was eight months old when he was detained, is one of two kids he has.
