Palestinian detainee Khader Adnan remains on hunger strike for 28th day

Palestinian detainee Khader Adnan, 44, remains on hunger strike today for the 28th day in a row in protest of his detention without charge or trial by the Israeli occupation authorities.

Adnan was arrested by an Israeli army force that raided his home in the town of Arraba, near Jenin, on February 5, and has been on hunger strike from the first moment of his arrest. His home was thoroughly searched and vandalized by the attacking soldiers during his arrest.

Adnan, a former prisoner in Israeli jails, has been arrested 12 times by the Israeli occupation authorities over the past 20 years, and has spent a total of 8 years behind bars.

Adnan went on hunger strike four times during detention. His 67-day hunger strike in 2012 inspired a wave of Palestinian prisoners held under administrative detention to join him.
