RAMALLAH, Tuesday, October 26, 2021 (WAFA) – Israel renewed today the administrative detention for six more months of Hisham Abu Hawwash, who has been on hunger strike for 71 days demanding an end to his detention without charge or trial, according to Abu Hawwash’s attorney Jawad Boulus.
He denounced the renewal of the administrative detention order at a time Abu Hawwash has put his life on the line in order to have his current detention period come to an end and be freed.
This decision explains the degree of vengeance Israel has against Abu Hawwash and the other hunger strikers despite their deteriorating health condition, said Boulus, who explained that there are no serious offers regarding their case and that renewing their detention orders is the answer provided for all those demanding their release from prison.
Abu Hawwash, 39, from Dura in the Hebron district, has been in detention since October of last year. He is married and a father of five children. His health condition is deteriorating as a result of the long hunger strike.
While Abu Hawwash has been on hunger strike for 71 days demanding his freedom, Kayed Fasfous has been on hunger strike for 104 days, Miqdad Qawasmi for 97 days and Alaa Araj for 80 days. In addition, Shadi Abu Aker has been on hunger strike for 63 days and Ayyad Harimi for 34 days, all demanding an end to their prolonged administrative detention.
