35-year-old father of three Hasan al-Awiwi has been on hunger-strike for 59 days in Israeli occupation captivity by today Friday May 31st.
He was arrested by Israel’s occupation forces on January 15th and has been kept imprisoned without charge or trial since. He has also been previously imprisoned by the occupation.
Hasan al-Awiwi declared the hunger-strike on April 2nd after his administrative detention was continued by Israeli occupation military court.
The goal of al-Awiwi’s hunger-strike, which has now taken him to either prison infirmary or civilian medical centre in Israel according to contradictory reports, is to gain his freedom.
Hasan al-Awiwi has threatened to escalate his hunger-strike by stopping taking salt water, making it a dry hunger-strike. His health has already said to have experienced a “sharp decline”.
Long hunger-strikes like al-Awiwi’s usually end in ‘a compromise’ in which Israeli regime agrees not to extend the political prisoner’s imprisonment beyond the end of the current term of administrative detention, which is at maximum six months.
