Israeli High Court rejects appeal for release of hunger-striking prisoner nearing sudden death

RAMALLAH, Monday, November 15, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli high court rejected today evening an appeal submitted by the Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs Commission for the immediate release of Palestinian administrative detainee Kayed Fasfous, who is facing the risk of sudden death after 124 days of hunger strike, said the commission in a statement.

The Israeli high court rejected today and for the fourth time a petition submitted for the release of Fasfous, amid a state of indifference and deliberate criminal disregard for his life by the Israeli occupation authorities, said the ministry.

Fasfous, 34, from the southern West Bank town of Dura, has been on an open-ended hunger strike to demand an end of his indefinite administrative detention without charge or trial by the Israeli occupation authorities.

On Saturday, doctors at the Israeli Barzilai Medical Center, where Fasfous is being treated, told his family that their son was nearing sudden death after 122 days of hunger strike.

Fasfous is experiencing an intermittent loss of consciousness, irregular heartbeats, tingling in the chest, a decrease in blood pressure, kidney and heart problems, a shortage of fluids in his body, and recurring pains and aches across his body, which makes him vulnerable to a severe relapse.
