Adnan, from the Arraba town in the northern West Bank district of Jenin, has previously gone through two major hunger strikes, one was a 66-day long hunger strike in 2012 and another 55-day long in 2015, protesting his administrative detention.

However, Adnan is not currently being held in administrative detention.
Israeli forces had detained Adnan on December 11, 2017, accusing him of incitement.
