Jihad leader launches hunger strike in Israeli jail while #HanaShalabi in critical condition

Maan News Agency | March 27, 2012

JENIN (Ma’an) — Islamic Jihad announced Tuesday a senior member of the movement who was detained by Israel a week ago has began a hunger strike against his administrative detention.

Jafar Ez Al-Din Qadan, 40, was seized by Israeli forces from Arraba village south of Jenin, at dawn on Wednesday. He was transferred to administrative detention — without charge — and immediately began refusing food in protest, the group said.

Ez Al-Din Qadan has spent four years in Israeli jails. His brother Tareq was released in the October 2011 prisoner exchange deal, and deported to the Gaza Strip.

Jihad-affiliated detainee Khader Adnan, also from Arraba, ended a 66-day hunger strike after striking a deal for early release and non-renewal of his detention order in February.

Hunger striker Hana Shalabi refused a deal to shorten her administrative detention order to four months, and has spent 41 days without food.

Shalabi is in a critical condition, doctors say.
