Israel reinstates detention of hunger-striking prisoner Kayed al-Fasfous

RAMALLAH, Friday, October 29, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities have reinstated the administrative detention, without charge or trial, of Palestinian prisoner Kayed al-Fasfous, who has been on hunger strike for 107 days demanding his freedom, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Detainees Affairs Commission.

On October 14, the Israeli High Court issued a verdict freezing the administrative detention of al-Fasfous, who is being treated at Israel’s Barzilai Medical Center due to his critical health condition.

A father of a girl, al-Fasfous was detained on 15 October 2020, and was placed in administrative detention, an Israeli policy which allows the detention of Palestinians without charge or trial for renewable intervals usually ranging between three and six months based on undisclosed evidence that even a detainee’s lawyer is barred from viewing.

Along with al-Fasfous, another six prisoners are on hunger strike demanding their freedom from administrative detention.

The other prisoners are Meqdad Qawasmeh, who has been on hunger strike for 100 days, Alaa Al-Aaraj (83 days), Hesham Abu Hawwash (74 days), Shadi Abu Akr (66 days), and Ayyad Hureimi (37 days).
