Occupied Palestine (QNN)- ‘Waed’ Detainees’ watchdog has said that the hunger-striking detainee Hisham Abu Hawwash is suspected to have blood poisoning and kidney damage.
Abu Hawwash, who has been on hunger strike for 139 days, is having difficulties in draining urine, according to the watchdog. Water in his body has decreased to one-third after he fell into coma.
Waed said that those are very dangerous signs, which mean that Abu Hawwash is dying. It also added that doctors, working for the Israeli Prison Service (IPS), beat Abu Hawwash when they were transferring him from the clinic of the Ramlah prison to the Israeli Asav Haroveh hospital.
Abu Hawwash is on hunger strike in protest against being illegally held under administrative detention without charges or trial.
Israeli authorities prevented all visitations to Abu Hawwash and continue to hold him, rejecting all demands to release him.
Imad Abu Hawwash, Hisham’s brother, wrote on his Facebook account that Hisham lost speech, hearing, and sight and that he is in a coma and vomiting blood.
