In related news, dozens of Palestinians held Friday noon prayers in the protest tent that was installed with detainee Miqdad al-Qawasma, 24, at Ibn Roshd Square in the center of Hebron city.

The Palestinian chanted for his freedom, especially since he continues the hunger strike he started 72 days ago protesting being held under the Israeli arbitrary Administrative Detention orders without charges.

It is worth noting that al-Qawasma is currently at the Kaplan Israeli medical center in a serious condition, but ongoing with the strike, his lawyer said.

He was abducted in January 2021 and is also a former political prisoner who was held for more than four years, including when he was held under arbitrary Administrative Detention orders.
