The Palestinian Detainees Committee has reported that the Israeli authorities transferred a hunger-striking detainee from a hospital to the infamous Ramla prison clinic despite his deteriorating health.
Hasan Abed-Rabbo, the spokesperson of the Detainees’ Committee, stated that the Israeli authorities transferred Khalil Awawda from the Assaf Harofeh medical center to the clinic in Ramla prison, despite his deteriorating condition.
He said Awawda started the hunger strike 65 days earlier, demanding an end to his arbitrary Administrative Detention without charges or trial.
He added that Awawda is in a serious health condition and requires constant medical supervision and described his transfer as an attempt to slowly kill the detainee instead of listening to his legitimate demands, especially since he was moved to the hospital just a day earlier.
The PPS said Khalil Awawda, 40, from Ethna town, west of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, began the hunger strike 64 days earlier, protesting his continued arbitrary Administrative Detention without charges or trial.
Awawda, a married father of four children, was abducted on December 27, 2021, and has been held under the Administrative Detention orders without charges or trial. He is also a former political prisoner, abducted and detained several times since the year 2002.
In related news, Raed Rayyan, 27, from Beit Duqqu northwest of occupied Jerusalem, continues the hunger strike for the 29th day, protesting his Administrative Detention.
He is held in solitary confinement at Ofer Prison and faces a deteriorating health condition.
In related news, Ra’ed Rayyan, 27, from Beit Duqqu northwest of occupied Jerusalem, is ongoing with the hunger strike he started 29 days earlier, also protesting his continued Administrative Detention.
Rayyan, abducted on November 3, 2021, is held in solitary confinement at Ofer prison; he is also a former political prisoner who was held for 21 months under the arbitrary Administrative Detention order and was abducted again shortly after his release before being slapped with a six-month administrative detention order and then for four additional months before he declared the strike.
