Jerusalem, ALRAY - An Israeli human rights organization has filed a petition demanding the Israeli occupation transfer Palestinian detainee Khader Adnan, who has been on an open-ended hunger strike for 61 days, to hospital for treatment.
In the petition submitted Wednesday, the Physicians for Human Rights Association called for the Israeli occupation authorities to allow members of Adnan's family to visit him.
Adnan suffers from severe fatigue, blurred vision, concentration problems, and vomiting and his hearing is becoming weaker.
Despite his critical condition, the Israeli occupation authorities have refused to move Adnan to hospital should he suffers a sudden and severe setback.
The Israeli occupation authorities also prevent his wife and children from visiting him.
The petition was filed after the Israeli prison administrative discharged Adanan from the hospital a few hours after admitting him, claiming that he refused to undergo medical examinations.
The father of nine — his youngest is just 18 months old — has been detained by the Israeli occupation authorities twelve times and jailed for eight years, mostly under administrative detention without charge.
