Deteriorating Health Conditions of Palestinian Prisoner, Warning of His Death any Moment

M.Y | DOP -

Days of Palestine – Ramallah

The Palestinian Prisoner Club warned Thursday of the death of the Palestinian prisoner, Khalil Awawda, who is on hunger strike for the 152nd consecutive day, in protest against his administrative detention, after reports of a serious deterioration in his health.

The Prisoner Club said in a press statement that the prisoner Khalil Awawda is subject to death at any moment, and his perceptual awareness has been so damaged that it has turned into a kind of “ghost” after the abilities of sight and concentration have weakened.

Israeli Hebrew media reported that the health of prisoner Khalil Awawda, who has been on hunger strike for 152 days in a row, has seriously deteriorated.

Meanwhile, the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, said that a new deterioration occurred in the health of the hunger-striking prisoner, Khalil Awawdeh, which may affect his cognitive abilities.

In the same context, the Wa’ed Prisoners Association held the Israeli occupation fully responsible for the life of the prisoner, Khalil Awawdeh, after news of a serious deterioration in his health did not bode well.

Wa’ed Association explained that the Israeli occupation is hiding real information about his health condition.

It is noteworthy that transferring the prisoner Khalil Awawda to the hospital and allowing his family to visit him is among the demands of the “Islamic Jihad” movement for a ceasefire with the Israeli occupation army, which was carried out by an Egyptian mediation.

Last Friday, August 5, 2022, the Gaza Strip witnessed an Israeli offensive that lasted for 3 days between the Islamic Jihad movement and the Israeli occupation army, after the occupation assassinated the commander of the northern region of Al-Quds Brigades, the martyr Taysir Al-Jabari.

The latest Israeli military aggression against the Gaza Strip resulted in the deaths of 47 Palestinian citizens, including 16 children, and the injury of 360 others, around half of whom were women and children. The three-day aggression ended with a ceasefire.
