#PalHunger | Liberated prisoner Khader Adnan goes on hunger strike

[ PIC 11/02/2013 – 09:12 PM ]

JENIN, (PIC)– Liberated prisoner Khader Adnan announced on Monday that he would go on hunger strike in solidarity with Palestinian hunger strikers in Israeli jails.

He told the PIC reporter that he decided to go on hunger strike while on a visit to the Red Cross in El-Bireh and asked for a room to stay during his hunger strike.

He said that his decision was unplanned and was not coordinated with anyone. He said he wanted to draw the world’s attention to the suffering of Palestinian prisoners.

Adnan held the Israeli occupation authorities fully responsible for the lives of prisoners especially those on hunger strike, and asked the world community to pressure the IOA into releasing them.

Adnan was the first Palestinian prisoner to go on hunger strike singlehandedly in rejection of administrative detention. He was released after 66 days of hunger strike.

Relatives of hunger striker Tarek Qadan went on a similar hunger strike in front of the council of ministers in Ramallah demanding greater concern with the issue of those hunger strikers.

“On Torture” is an edited volume of essays by Palestinian, Israeli and international legal and medical experts and practitioners based on presentations that they gave during a workshop held in Jerusalem in April 2011 entitled, “Securing Accountability for Torture and Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment (CIDT) in Israel: New Trends and Comparative Lessons”.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
