Khader Adnan Ending Hunger Strike


So far, he's yet to confirm it.

by Stephen Lendman

Ma'an News said Adnan will stop hunger striking following a deal to release him on April 17, according to PA Prison Affairs Minister Issa Qaraqe.

Adnan didn't confirm it, and so far his lawyer didn't comment. The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has no information to report.

On February, Haaretz writer Jack Koury went further, saying:

"Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan announced Tuesday that he will be ending his 66-day hunger strike after Israel agreed to release him."

Late Tuesday, Qaraqe and PPS head Qaddura Faris will hold a news conference in Adnan's Jenin area village to discuss details.

On February 21, Reuters headlined, "Palestinian prisoner ending hunger strike after deal," saying:

Israel's Justice Ministry spokeswoman said:

"There is a deal. (Adnan) will stop his hunger strike. They will not extend his administrative detention and he will be free on April 17."

As a result, Israel's High Court cancelled its scheduling Tuesday mid-day hearing, "avoiding a high-profile examination of the issue of detention without (charge) or trial."

It's high time that issue was addressed and ended. Administrative detention is only warranted under emergency conditions for the shortest possible time. Israel abusively uses it. 

Hundreds are held lawlessly uncharged for indefinite periods. Due process and judicial fairness are denied. It's unconscionable that Israel's Supreme Court hasn't ruled the practice illegal. In fact, it's upheld it for decades on bogus national security grounds.
