West Bank, ALRAY - Health of Palestinian detainee Hisham Abu Hawwash has deteriorated after 111 days of hunger strike to protest his administrative detention without charge or trial.

 

Abu Hawwash suffered from fatigue, repeated loss of consciousness, a severe potassium deficiency, and sharp pain in his liver and heart and cannot sleep due to aches and pains all over his body.

 

Israeli occupation forces detained Abu Hawwash, a father of five children, on 27 October 2020 during a raid into Dura town in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron and referred him to administrative detention for six months.

 

He had been detained several times and jailed for a total of eight years in Israeli occupation prisons, 52 months of which he spent under administrative detention without charge or trial.

 

After his first administrative detention order ended on 27 April, the Israeli occupation intelligence service issued him a new order for six months.

 

Four months later, he staged an open-ended hunger strike demanding an end to his imprisonment without charge or trial.

 

Abu Hawwash was incarcerated in "Ofer" prison for a month before being transferred to "Ramle" prison, during which he faced repressive measures, including putting him in solitary confinement and banning his lawyer and family from meeting him.

 

During his strike, he was transferred to Israeli hospitals several times, but the Israeli prison administration returned him to "Ramle" prison.

 

Last Thursday, his lawyer filed a petition to the Israeli supreme court demanding Abu Hawwash's administrative detention to be suspended and be transferred to an Israeli civil hospital as soon as possible.
