The Palestinian administrative prisoner, Khalil Awawdeh, 40, has been on a hunger strike for 43 days, in protest of his administrative detention without charge or trial.
Awawdeh, from Hebron, is suffering from headaches, fatigue, and pain in the joints, and has lost 16 kilograms of his weight since he started the hunger strike.
He was recently transferred from Ofer prison, near Ramallah where he has been held, to Ramla prison clinic.
Awawdeh is one of 60 Palestinian freedom fighters incarcerated in Israeli jails who went on hunger strike since last year to win their freedom, most of them were held in administrative detention.
Israel’s policy of administrative detention allows the detention of Palestinians without charge or trial for renewable intervals based on undisclosed evidence that even a detainee’s lawyer is barred from viewing.
There are currently over 530 Palestinian administrative detainees in Israeli jails.
