On Sunday, Abu Atwan announced that he would now stop drinking water in protest against Israel’s ignoring of his demands.
28-year-old Abu Atwan, from Dora in occupied Hebron, began his strike on 5 May and has refused all forms of food or supplements since.
Due to the deterioration in his health, he has been admitted to the Kaplan Medical Centre, which is in the Israeli prison where he was being detained. However, the Israeli occupation authorities continue to hold him and refuse to release him.
Holding Abu Atwan in the hospital inside its prisons aims at protecting the Israeli Shin Bet and Prison Service from any accountability if anything happened to Abu Atwan, while, at the same time, detain him inside an Israeli hospital.
Israeli occupation authorities also rejected to move him to a Palestinian hospital.
Abu Atwan’s health has been seriously deteriorating as doctors told him he will not survive without water or food as his body is shutting down.
