Abu Hawwash’s family says he has started to move into coma

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- The family of the hunger-striking administrative detainee Hisham Abu Hawwash said that they are concerned that he has started to move into a coma.

“Since 3:00 am, Hisham has never woken up”, Abu Hawwash’s brother wrote on his Facebook account. “His wife awakens him to make him drink water and he immediately goes back to sleep, which is the start of coma.”

The spokesperson for the Committee of Detainees and Former Detainees Affairs, Hasan Abed Rabbo, had said that “the medical condition of Hisham is noticeably deteriorating, especially that he has been losing consciousness in several occasions.”

“He lost his ability to move and he has difficulties in speech”, Abed Rabbo added.

Following a visit to Abu Hawwash, representatives from the Ministry of Health had confirmed that he is in a very critical condition.

Abu Hawwash, a father of five children, was arrested in October 2020 under administrative detentions without charges or trial. He started his hunger strike 138 days ago in protest against his unlawful detention. Israeli authorities continue to refuse to release him or even transfer him to a Palestinian hospital.
