Palestinian Prisoner Adnan transferred to Kaplan hospital in unstable condition

7 July 2015 19:18


Zionist Israeli prison service (IPS) transferred the 37-year-old Palestinian detainee Khader Adnan Musa from the Ramla prison clinic to Kaplan hospital, the Muhjat al-Quds Foundation for Martyrs and Prisoners said Monday.

Earlier, the IPS transferred prisoner Adnan from the Assaf Harofeh hospital to the Ramla prison clinic.

The Muhjat al-Quds Foundation raised alarm bells over the unstable health condition of prisoner Adnan due to the critical repercussions of a 55-day hunger-striking he had undergone in protest at being held administratively, with neither charge nor trial, at the Israeli occupation jails.

Adnan ended his hunger strike a few days earlier following pledges by the IPS to release him on July 12, 2015.

Adnan, who staged one of the longest hunger strikes in history in 2012, is showing sharp weight loss and has been suffering severe stomachaches due to uncontrollable vomiting.

Medics at the Kaplan hospital said Adnan has to undergo urgent medical check-ups so as to follow up on his health condition.

Adnan was arrested near Jenin in July during an Israeli arrest campaign across the West Bank. He is one of many former prisoners re-arrested for unclear reasons.

In November, an Israeli military court ruled to release Adnan after five months without trial or charge, but the ruling was never implemented and Adnan remains in jail without any explanation as to why he has been arrested.

In 2012, he took part in a 66-day hunger strike against administrative detention, without trial or charge. The agreement that released him on April 18 of that year also ended a hunger strike of 2,000 Palestinian prisoners, who had called for an end to administrative detention.

Adnan re-embarked on an open ended hunger-strike on May 5, 2015 in protest at renewed administrative detention.
