RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Detained hunger striker Abdullah Al-Barghouthi has entered a critical health condition, lawyer Fawaz Al-Shalloudi of the Palestinian prisoner’s society said on Sunday.

Shalloudi said after calling on Barghouthi in Afula hospital that he did not see him in this condition since he went on hunger strike on 2nd of May.

The lawyer said that Barghouthi was suffering from pain and serious failure in his liver, irregular heartbeat, and malfunction of blood vessels that carry oxygen to the brain.

He said that the hospital’s director asked a team of doctors and lawyers to examine Barghouthi’s health and legal conditions.

Barghouthi, who is serving 67 life sentences and 2500 years, is one of five Jordanian captives who went on hunger strike early May demanding their release or serving their remaining sentences in Jordanian prisons.
