LOD, Saturday, August 13, 2022 (WAFA) – Dozens of activists demonstrated today evening in front of Assaf Harofeh Hospital in Tel Aviv, where Palestinian prisoner Khalil Awawdeh is being treated due to a severe deterioration on his health after 153 days of hunger strike in protest of his administrative detention without charge or trial.

The protest was called for by Palestinian national and popular forces in the 1948 occupied land in support of hunger striking Palestinian prisoners and the Israeli prison administration’s arbitrary measures against them.

Protesters carried the Palestinian flag and pictures of Awawdeh while chanting slogans demanding the immediate release of Awawdeh and all Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Israel's widely criticized administrative detention policy is intended to muzzle Palestinian political activists and curtail their freedom for as long as possible.
