Palestinian prisoners held in administrative detention launched a one-day hunger strike in solidarity with fellow detainee Kayed Fasfous, who is undergoing a life-threatening hunger strike in an Israeli prison.

Palestinian administrative detainees decided to go on a one-day hunger strike on Wednesday in solidarity with fellow prisoner Kayed Fasfous, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

For 62 days, Fasfous is undergoing a life-threatening hunger strike in an Israeli prison in protest against his administrative detention, without charge nor trial.

Fasfous was moved last week by the Israeli prison authorities from the Ashkelon Prison to the Ramla Prison clinic due to a severe health setback.

The National Committee for the Prisoners’ Movement said in a statement that “after our bitter experience in the case of the assassination of Khader Adnan, and his cowardly execution, the entire Prisoners’ Movement and in all prisons will not stand idly by and will not allow the repetition of what happened with the martyr Khader Adnan in any way.”

The committee also warned against attempts by the Israeli occupation authority and its intelligence to endanger Fasfous’ life and held Israel fully responsible for his life.

It also stressed that the solidarity steps will continue until Fasfous’ demand is met in light of the intransigence of the Israeli occupation courts and its intelligence in responding to his demand.

The PPS said the number of Palestinian administrative detainees held in Israel for their political activities or views reached more than 1,300 by the end of September, including more than 20 minors and four women.
