HEBRON (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian prisoner being held under Israel's administrative detainee status was transferred to Hadassah hospital on Friday after going on hunger strike three days earlier.

Mohammad Ahmad al-Najjar 30, suffers from a stomach illness, the Palestinian prisoners society reported.

The prisoner has been in and out of administrative detention for eight years of his life. He was last arrested on Oct. 30 and began a hunger strike immediately upon arriving.

The detention has been set for four months, the society said.

Jaclyn Fararjeh, a lawyer for the society, visited al-Najjar and reported that he was badly treated by soldiers. He has been transferred between three prisons before arriving at Ofer.

The prisoners society director in Hebron, Amjad al-Najjar, condemned the arrest and called on Israeli authorities to release the detainee. Mohammad is Amjad's brother.
