Palestinian Prisoner Continues Open Hunger Strike for 43rd Day

B.M | DOP -

Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan entered on Sunday, March 19, 2023, his 43rd day of an open-ended hunger strike to protest his administrative detention.

Prisoner Adnan is held in solitary confinement in the Al-Jalama detention center under inhumane and harsh conditions.

Israeli occupation forces kidnapped Khader Adnan on February 5 after invading his home in occupied Jenin, the Palestinian prisoners’ Society PPS said.

The PPS pointed out that prisoner Adnan was arrested 12 times, and spent a total of about eight years in Israeli prisons. He was held under administrative detention during most of his arrests.

It added that Prisoner Adnan had gone through five previous hunger strikes in Israeli prisons, including four strikes against his administrative detention.
