27-year-old Palestinian detainee still continues hunger strike
for 84 consecutive days

West Bank (The Inside Palestine) 27-year-old Palestinian detainee Raed Rayyan has been continuing his open-ended hunger strike for 84 consecutive days to protest against his administrative detention without charge or trial.

Commission of Detainees’ Affairs has said that the detainee Rayyan is suffering from an acute loss of weight, a deficiency of fluids, vitamins and proteins, dizziness, vomiting and pains throughout his entire body.

 The commission added that Rayyan is now being held in the clinic of al-Ramleh prison, indicating that his health condition is deteriorating.

It noted that the detainee had been put in solitary confinement in Ofer prison for two consecutive months, which aggravated his health condition.

According to Palestinian figures, about 4,500 Palestinians, including 32 women and 160 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.

Among them, more than 680 Palestinians are currently being held under “Israel’s” illegal policy of administrative detention without charge or trial.
