Jerusalem, ALRAY - Palestinian detainee Khader Adnan, who has been on an open-ended hunger strike for 53 days to protest his arbitrary detention without charge, was transferred to hospital Wednesday after his health seriously deteriorated.
According to Muhjat al-Quds Foundation, Adnan was sent back to the under-equipped Ramla prison clinic on the same day after he refused to receive treatment and undergo medical tests.
His condition has dramatically deteriorated as he suffers from blurred eyesight, muscle contractions in his hands, repeated blackouts, dizziness, vomiting, and sleep deprivation.
The foundation held the Israeli occupation fully responsible for Adnan's life due to its reluctance to end his unlawful incarceration without charge.
It called on human rights groups, including the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the UN Human Rights Council, to save Adnan's life and place pressure on the Israeli occupation to release him before it is too late.
The Israeli occupation army detained Adnan on 5 February during a pre-dawn raid on his home in Arraba village, southwest of Jenin, in the northern occupied West Bank.
Adnan launched his open-ended hunger strike soon after his detention.
Over the past 20 years, the Israeli occupation army detained Adnan 12 times for his anti-occupation activities and jailed him for a total of eight years.
