After 107-Day Hunger Strike, Israeli Occupation Reactivates Administrative Detention Of Palestinian Prisoner

Occupied Palestine (The Inside Palestine)- The Israeli prosecution has activated an administrative detention order against Palestinian prisoner Miqdad Al-Qawasmi who has been on a hunger strike for 107 days, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club said in a statement.

Twenty-four-year-old Al-Qawasmi is being held in intensive care at the Israeli Kaplan Hospital because his health has deteriorated to such an extent that prisoner rights groups have said he could die at any minute.

Al-Qawasma, who has been arrested by occupation forces several times, has spent a total of about four years in Israeli prisons.

He is one of six prisoners who embarked on open-ended hunger strikes to protest being held on administrative detention, an Israeli policy that allows detaining Palestinians indefinitely based on “secret information”, without pressing formal charges or putting them on trial.
