RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- An Israeli court will hold a special session for hunger-striking prisoner Adnan Khader on Thursday.
Palestinian prisoners society lawyer Jawad Bulus told Ma'an on Wednesday that the appeal session will take place in Zeif hospital in Safed at 11 a.m.
The decision was made after Israeli authorities were advised that Adnan's poor health would prevent him from being moved to Ofer court, Bulus said.
A chairman at Zeif hospital sent a letter to Ofer court informing them that Adnan has refused all treatment and his condition is serious.
Moving him via ambulance could endanger his life, the letter said.
The Palestinian Authority called Tuesday for the immediate release of detainee Khader Adnan, who has been on hunger strike for 53 days, the longest period any Palestinian prisoner has undertaken.
Prisoner group Addameer expressed "its utmost concern about the health of Khader Adnan" and holds Israel accountable for Adnan's life.
There are currently 307 prisoners in administrative detention, without charge, in Israeli jails. The practice was started under British mandate rule.
