Palestinian administrative prisoner Khalil Awawdeh was moved to the hospital on Wednesday, as his health is now critical after his 68-day hunger strike, his lawyer Ahlam Haddad said.
Forty-year-old Awawdeh suffers from continuous headaches, pain in the joints, fatigue, irregular heartbeats, and difficulty breathing. He is vomiting blood and losing weight, Haddad said.
