Hunger strike of Palestinian detainee Atabish hits day 122

Hunger strike of Palestinian detainee Atabish hits day 122.

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian administrative detainee Ayman Atabish, from Dura in al-Khalil, has been without food for 122 uninterrupted days in protest at being locked up in Israeli jails with no indictment or trial.

Alarm bells have been raised over Atabish’s critical health status, which has remarkably gone down ever since the detainee initiated his open-ended hunger-strike on February 28.

Hunger-striking Atabish has been diagnosed with cardiovascular disorders, breathing problems and numbness in his limbs, among many other diseases affecting his kidney and stomach.

Concerns over Atabish’s life have been on the rise, especially that the prisoner had been starving for 105 days last year so as to voice his disapproval over the random administrative prison-term issued against him without charges.

Atabish had been on another hunger-strike in 2012 in solidarity with Sheikh Khedr Adnan.
