Prisoner Hisham Abu Hawash, 40, continues his open hunger strike in the Israeli occupation prisons for the 122nd day, rejecting his administrative detention, while his health condition continues to deteriorate severely.
Abu Hawash, whose condition is worsening, is currently being held inside the Ramle Clinic Prison, according to the Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Authority.
Abu Hawash suffers from obvious emaciation and a sharp weight loss. He can hardly speak, and he suffers from severe aches throughout his body, especially his lower limbs, which he can no longer feel, and he cannot stand on his feet and uses a wheelchair.
In a statement, the Prisoners Committee said that the occupation courts continue their intransigence and refusal to respond to the demand of the striking prisoner Abu Hawash, expressing its concern for his life, while holding the occupation authorities fully responsible, especially as he is at risk of dying any moment.
A few days ago, the Israeli court issued a decision confirming the 4-month detention of Abu Hawash, despite the serious deterioration of his health condition which is critical now.
It is noteworthy that the occupation authorities arrested Abu Hawash from the town of Dura, south of Hebron, on October 27 last year, and issued three administrative detention orders against him, each for a period of 6 months, and the last order was reduced from 6-4 months, subject to extension.
He has previously been arrested several times, as he has been arrested since 2003 with verdicts and administrative detention, and the total years of his detention amounted to 8 years, including 52 months under administrative detention.
