Awawda And Rayyan Continue Hunger Strike

On Saturday morning, the Palestinian Detainees’ Committee reported that two detainees held by Israeli under arbitrary Administrative Detention orders without charges or trial are ongoing their hunger strike.

It said that Raed Rayyan, 28, from Beit Duqqu town west of occupied Jerusalem, continues the hunger strike for the 101st day despite his deteriorating health.

Rayyan was abducted on November 3rd, 2021, and was slapped with a six-month Administrative Detention order which was renewed for an additional six months.

He is also a former political prisoner who was held by Israel for 21 months and is currently in Ramla prison.

The Committee also said that Khalil Awawda, 40, from Ethna town west of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, resumed his strike 15 days ago.

Awawda held a hunger strike that lasted for 111 days and only ended it after reaching a verbal agreement for his release before Israel reneged on the agreement and slapped him with a new four-month Administrative Detention order prompting him to relaunch the strike.

Awawda, currently at the Assaf Harofeh Israeli Medical Center, was abducted on December 27th, 2021, and has since been held under the repeatedly renewed Administrative Detention orders.

Israel is holding captive 640 Palestinians under arbitrary Administrative Detention orders without charges or trial; they are among at least 4600 detainees imprisoned by Israel.

It is worth mentioning that Administrative Detainees in Israeli prisons continue to boycott the Israeli military courts for the 189th day, demanding to be released or at least face charges.

Israel issued more than 54.000 Administrative Detention orders since it occupied the rest of Palestine in 1967.

When Israel slaps a detainee with an Administrative Detention order and continuously renews the orders for many months, it claims to have “secret files” that neither the detainees nor their lawyers can access.

Administrative Detention orders are usually renewed for three, four, six, or eight months at a time, and sometimes one year.

Israeli Colonizers Release Their Cattle To Graze On Palestinian Farmlands

On Friday, illegal Israeli colonizers released their cattle to graze on Palestinian farmlands in the al-Mleihat area west of Jericho, in the northeastern part of the occupied West Bank.

Hasan Mleihat, the supervisor of the Al-Baidar Organization for Defending the Rights of the Bedouins, said the colonizers came from some surrounding outposts installed on stolen Palestinian lands.

He added that the Israeli assailants released their cattle to graze on the Palestinian farmlands near the Dwellings of the Bedouins.

Mleihat said the colonizers repeatedly use their cattle to destroy Palestinian crops and farmlands in the area to force the Palestinians to build or expand their illegal colonialist outposts.

Such attacks and violations devastate Palestinian farmers and Bedouins as they target only sources of livelihood, including occupying springs and other essential water resources.
