Ramallah, ALRAY - Hunger striking Palestinian detainee in Israeli occupation jails Ahmad Zahran has been on hunger strike for 84 days in a row, in a protest against his administrative detention without trial or charge, said commission of Detainees’ Affairs.


The commission added that Zahran is being held at Kaplan medical center, with his body tied up to the bed, noting that he has lost over 30kg of his weight.


It pointed out that the Israeli occupation authorities suggested no serious solutions to solve the case of Zahran, adding that the detainee Zahran was hospitalized after being subjected to a serious drop in his health condition, as he stopped having water.


It indicated that detainee Zahran has begun his open-ended hunger strike after the Israeli occupation authorities did not fulfill its promise to end his administrative detention in the last strike that went on for 38 days and ended in last July.


It’s noteworthy to mention that detainee Ahmad Zahran, 42, a resident of Deir Abu Mash'al village to the northwest of Ramallah, has spent about 15 years in Israeli occupation jails.


According to Palestinian figures, about 5,700 Palestinians, including 48 women and 250 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.


Among them, close to 500 Palestinians are currently being held under Israel’s illegal policy of administrative detention, under which prisoners can be held for renewable six-month periods without charge or trial.
