Palestinian Prisoner Remains on Hunger Strike for 94 Days in Israeli Occupation Jails

Days of Palestine -

Palestinian administrative prisoner Ra’ed Rayyan continues his hunger strike for 94 days in a row demanding an end to his detention without charge or trial by the Israeli occupation.

Rayyan, who’s currently held in the infamous Ramla Prison Hospital, is suffering from a severe loss of weight, lack of vitamins, and proteins, dizziness, frequent vomiting, and pains all over his body, adding that his health condition is worsening with time.

Israel’s widely condemned policy of administrative detention allows the detention of Palestinians without charge or trial for renewable intervals usually ranging between three and six months based on undisclosed evidence that even a detainee’s lawyer is barred from viewing.

Amnesty International, has described Israel’s administrative detention policy as a “cruel, unjust practice which helps maintain Israel’s system of apartheid against Palestinians.”
