Jerusalem, ALRAY - Palestinian detainee Hisham Awwad has gone on an open-ended hunger strike to demonstrate against his incarceration without charge or trial.

 

The Palestinian Prisoners Club said that Awwad has been held under administrative detention without charge since 15 December 2022.

 

The Israeli occupation army detained Awwad for the first time in 2020. The Israeli occupation authorities issued him three administrative detention at the time, holding him for a total of one year and a half without charge.

 

Administrative detention is a widely-condemned form of imprisonment that allows the Israeli occupation to hold Palestinians without charge or trial for renewable periods of time based on "secret evidence" in a stark violation of international humanitarian law.

 

The Israeli occupation is holding at least 1,016 Palestinians under administrative detention without charge, including six children and one woman, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Club.
