AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Palestinian prisoner Mohammed Ahmed al-Najjar, 28, from Fawar refugee camp south of al-Khalil declared his hunger strike to protest his illegal administrative detention.

Mohammed announced his open hunger strike since the moment of his arrest on October 30 at the hands of the Israeli occupation forces, the prisoner’s brother told PIC’s reporter, adding that he was taken immediately after his arrest to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, suffering from amoeba germ. Najjar is in need of immediate and regular treatment, the brother added.

Najjar is one of the Islamic Jihad cadres in al-Khalil and a former detainee in PA jails. He spent more than 8 years in Israeli jails and immediately after his arrest he was sentenced to administrative detention, without charge, for four months.

The Israeli occupation forces arrested Najjar from his home and assaulted him then transferred him to Etzion settlement and then to Ofer prison.
