Palestinian prisoner enters 98th day of hunger strike protesting administrative detention

Ramallah (QNN)- The Palestinian prisoner Ahmad Zahran (42 years old) is continuing his hunger strike for the 98th day protesting his administrative detention.

Zahran, a father of four kids from the village of Deir Mash’al in Ramallah, has spent a total of 15 years in Israeli jails. He was sent from the prison clinic to hospital a few days ago after a deterioration in his health condition.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Club has said two days ago that Zahran’s health condition is deteriorating dangerously. He suffers from several conditions and is now in the hospital of Ramleh prison.

Zahran was arrested last March under administrative detention for no charges. This is his second hunger strike; the first one has continued for 39 days and was ended when the Israelis promised to release him before breaking their promise and renewing his arrest.

Administrative detention is arrest and detention without charges or trials. It continues for prolonged periods and depends on charges that remain “classified” upon military orders.
