"Battle of the Empty Stomachs wages on: Akram Rikhawi's health continues to deteriorate as Mahmoud Sarsak's hunger strike successfully concludes," saying:

Akram Rikhawi continues hunger striking for justice. June 22 was day 72. He faces "imminent threat to his life...."

On June 19, Addameer lawyer Mona Neddaf saw him. He's at Ramle Prison's clinic. Independent doctors can't treat him. PHR-I physicians last visited him on June 6.

He's extremely tired, weak, and at risk. At 108 pounds, he's considerably below his normal weight. Since June 16, he refused vitamins and IV drips. He's only ingesting water.

Neddaf "observe(d) that even drinking water is now very difficult for him, and he is only able to consume approximately one liter per day."
