Occupied WB, ALRAY - The health condition of the hunger striking Palestinian detainee in Israeli occupation jails Kanan Kanan has deteriorated, said commission of Detainees’ Affairs.

The commission pointed out that the detainee Kanan suffers from vomiting accompanied by blood and considerable loss of weight, indicating that the Israeli prison service refuses to transfer him to hospital.

As resident of the town of Hazma in occupied Jerusalem, the 35-year-old detainee Kanan was re-detained in last August and placed under administrative detention order for four months.

At least 50 Palestinian detainees in Israeli occupation jails have been taking part in an open-ended hunger strike in a protest against their administrative detention order without charge or trial.

According to Palestinian figures, more than 4,600 Palestinians, including 32 women and 180 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.

Among them, over 700 Palestinians, including six minors and two women, are currently being held under Israel’s illegal policy of administrative detention, under which the detainees can be held for renewable six-month periods without charge or trial.
