Family of hunger striking prisoner Khader Adnan pay visit to hospital

Maan News Agency Febr 19 2012

JENIN (Ma’an) — Khader Adnan’s family visited him in hospital on Sunday, calling on the international community to support their son.

“I am going to the hospital to visit my dad and tell him I love you,” Adnan’s 3-year-old son told reporters. The senior Islamic Jihad member is being held in Zaef hospital, Safed.

Adnan’s father called on Arab and world leaders to pressure Israel to release his son and return him home.

Adnan has refused food since his Dec. 17 detention in northern West Bank city of Jenin. It is the longest hunger strike any Palestinian prisoner has undertaken.

He has not been charged with any crime.

There are an estimated 307 Palestinians in Israeli administrative detention — held without charge — in Israeli jails.
