The Palestinian prisoner Khalil Awawda, 40 years, from the town of Idna as well as the Palestinian prisoner Raed Rayan, 27 years, from the village of Beit Duqo, north of occupied Jerusalem west of Hebron, continues his hunger strike for the 50th day, and, for the 16th day.
Awawda and Rayan are on strike in protest of their continued administrative detention in Israeli prisons.
Awawda was transferred a few days ago from the solitary confinement cells in Ofer to the Ramleh detention center after his health deteriorated.
He also suffers from irregular heartbeat and breathing, persistent vomiting and a sharp decrease in weight, as he lost more than 16 kg.
The Israeli occupation has refused to respond to his request to end his administrative detention.
Awawda is a father of four girls, and the occupation forces arrested him on 27/12/2021 and transferred him to administrative detention without any accusation being brought against him.
He was previously arrested in the occupation detention centers several times.
Meanwhile, Rayan is being held in Ofer Prison. He was arrested on 3/11/2021 after the occupation forces raided his house.
He was transferred to administrative detention for a period of 6 months, but after the end of the detention period, it was renewed for an additional 4 months.
