Islamic Jihad leader enters day 34 of hunger strike

Jan. 20, 2012 8:20 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 23, 2012 5:08 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Senior Islamic Jihad member Khader Adnan entered the 34th day of a hunger strike on Friday.

Adnan was detained by Israeli forces on Dec. 17 from his Jenin home. He has been on a hunger strike since his arrest to protest against his treatment by prison authorities.

The Islamic Jihad leader said that after being arrested an Israeli interrogator dragged him to the floor by his beard. The Israeli officer then used Adnan's beard to polish his shoes, Adnan told a lawyer from the prisoners society.

The Islamic Jihad movement organized a solidarity protest on Friday, calling on people to support Adnan until Israel decides to release him.

Islamic Jihad leader Khader Habib said during a speech that Israel is responsible for Adnan's life.

Israel is carrying out a systematic campaign to arrest Palestinian political leaders, he added.
