Prisoner Khader Adnan on 7th day of hunger strike

Sept. 8, 2018 2:26 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 10, 2018 12:43 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma'an) -- Palestinian prisoner, Khader Adnan, 40, is on his 7th day of open hunger strike in rejection for his "arbitrary" detention.

The prisoners' rights group Muhjat al-Quds Foundation said, in a statement, that Adnan has begun his open hunger strike on Sunday, September 2nd, demanding his immediate release.

Adnan, from the Arraba town in the northern West Bank district of Jenin, has previously went through two major hunger strikes, one was a 66-day long hunger strike in 2012 and another 55-day long in 2015, protesting his administrative detention. However, Adnan is not currently being held in administrative detention.

Israeli forces had detained Adnan on December 11th, 2017 accusing him of incitement.

According to Adnan's wife, Randa, Adnan told his lawyer that Israel fakes charges to keep holding him in prison.
