  • Palestinians protest administrative detention of hunger striker prisoner Khalil Awawdeh

The Israeli occupation bears full responsibility for the life of hunger-striking Palestinian prisoner Khalil Awawdeh, who has been on strike for 152 days to protest his administrative detention, the Waed Prisoners’ Association said Thursday.

“The news received from the Ramleh prison clinic on the condition of prisoner Awawdeh does not bode well, and the occupation is hiding real information about his health [condition]“, said the association on Thursday.

The Waed Association reported that Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli occupation prisons were in a state of anger and on high alert in light of “Tel Aviv’s” reluctance to release Awawdeh or release him. transport it where it can be properly cared for.

“Prisoner Khalil Awawdeh is at risk of brain and nerve damage as a result of his hunger strike,” the Israel Public Broadcaster said. CAN said.

A video shared online by social media users shows Khalil Awadeh’s mother crying and mourning her son prematurely. “They want to kill my son. They want to kill my son. I can’t live, I can’t. I’m tired, I swear I’m tired. I want my son back,” she cried.

An Israeli occupation court held an unscheduled hearing for Awawdeh on Wednesday due to his deteriorating health. However, he is still being held in Ramleh prison, without being transferred to a hospital.

Awawdeh’s freedom was one of the clauses of the Egyptian-brokered ceasefire between the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and the Israeli occupation, which took place earlier this week after several days of aggression attack on the Gaza Strip, killing dozens of Palestinian civilians and injuring hundreds more.

The Israeli occupation began on August 5 with an assault on the Gaza Strip on Friday, and the Al-Quds Brigades announced that Taiseer Al-Jaabari, a military commander in the northern Gaza Strip, had been martyred.

Therefore, the Al-Quds Brigades launched an operation in response to the Israeli occupation’s aggression on the Gaza Strip by launching salvoes of rockets towards the occupied Palestinian territories.

The Israeli occupation carried out several massacres on Saturday and Sunday during the bombardment of the Gaza Strip, including the latest near the Al-Faluja cemetery, and before that, a massacre in the Jabalya camp left five people dead, including three children.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) official Anwar Abu Taha said on Tuesday that Awawdeh had been taken to a hospital and his family would be allowed to visit him as a prelude to his suffering ending.

The official said a delegation from the International Red Cross visited the two prisoners, Bassam Al-Saadi and Khalil Awawdeh.

The source confirmed that the Israeli occupation met the conditions of the PIJ, as Awawdeh was transferred to receive treatment outside the prison after contact between the Egyptian side and the occupation.

The source mentioned that the Egyptian side has contacted a senior PIJ official and conveyed a message of comfort regarding Cairo’s efforts to implement the movement’s demands regarding Al-Saadi and Awawdeh prisoners.

The Palestinian prisoners’ media office said on Thursday that the Israeli occupation would try PIJ leader Bassam Al-Saadi.

The Israeli Occupation’s Justice Minister, Gideon Sa’ar, denied the existence of a political commitment by the Israeli Occupation to release the prisoner Al-Saadi.

“I can also say that we have no intention of releasing hunger striker prisoner Khalil Awadeh before the end of his administrative detention sentence,” he added.

Our correspondent reported earlier this month that “Israeli special forces raided the house of PIJ leader Bassam Al-Saadi in the camp”, and Israeli media reported the arrest of Al-Saadi.

Ezz El-Din Al-Saadi, the PIJ leader’s son, said the occupation had arrested his father and brother-in-law, noting that his father “was injured in the assault”, and that he “don’t know where they were both taken.”

Israeli media said Israeli forces arrested PIJ official Al-Saadi, who was injured before being captured, revealing reports of a serious wound he suffered in the abdomen.
