27-year-old Palestinian detainee Raed Rayan on Wednesday, June 29, entered his 84th running on hunger strike to protest his administrative detention without trial or charge.
Prisoner Rayan is in Al-Ramlah prison clinic as he suffers severe weight loss and a lack of fluids. His health condition is constantly deteriorating.
The Israeli occupation forces arrested Rayan on the 3rd of November 2021. He was sentenced to administrative detention for a period of 6 months, which was renewed upon its expiry. Moreover, he spent two months in solitary confinement.
About 4700 Palestinians are held now inside the Israeli prisons, including 32 women and 170 minors. In addition, up to 500 Palestinian prisoners are held administratively without trial or charge.
