The detainee was kidnapped on November 16, 2014, and received several administrative detention orders.

Adnan was moved to Kaplan medical center after suffering sharp pain in his stomach.

He held a 56-day hunger strike, protesting his continued Administrative Detention, and stopped his strike after Israel set his release date for July 12.

On July 1, detainee Nour Elayyan, from the al-Jalazoun refugee camp, near Ramallah, began a hunger strike to protest the renewal of his administrative detention.

Elayyan was arrested six months ago, and recently received a detention renewal order. http://www.imemc.org/article/72125
