138 days of hunger strike.. Prisoner Abu Hawash falls into a coma

The prisoner Hisham Abu Hawash, who has been on hunger strike for 138 days, is entering a new level of danger, as he is falling into a coma since this morning, in light of the continuation of his strike in rejection of his administrative detention.

The Commission of Detainees and Ex-Prisoners reported on Saturday that “Abu Hawash”, from the town of Dura, south of Hebron, has entered a very critical stage that requires urgent intervention and a speedy release. And the Palestinian Ministry of Health said Thursday, after visiting the prisoner, “Abu Hawash”, that it “found a man in a very critical condition, and we expect the worst at any moment.” The prisoner, Abu Hawash, suffers from blurry vision, inability to speak, severe muscle atrophy, and inability to move, while his ability to perceive what is going on around him has diminished.

He also suffers from wasting and weakness, severe potassium deficiency, severe pain in the liver and heart, and is unable to sleep due to severe aches throughout his body, and moves in a wheelchair, in addition to suffering from vomiting continuously. Last Sunday evening, the Israeli occupation authorities issued a decision to freeze the administrative detention order against the prisoner Abu Hawash. The occupation courts played a key role in the abuse procedures against the prisoner, through their decisions dependent on the decision of the occupation intelligence service, “Shin Bet.”

Abu Hawash is married and father of five children. He has been detained since October 2020, and an administrative detention order was issued against him for a period of 6 months. He is also a former prisoner who spent a total of 8 years in the occupation prisons. The occupation authorities use administrative detention in violation of international law.

They have issued administrative detention orders against all different groups of Palestinian society, including human rights activists, university students, lawyers, workers and mothers. The occupation authorities and prison administrations claim that administrative detainees have secret files that can never be revealed, so the detainee does not know the length of his sentence or the charges against him. The Palestinian prisoners have always been involved in a series of empty bowel battles in order to push the occupation authorities to stop using this unjust policy against them.
