WTF IS WRONG WITH US: Palestinian Arab Hunger Striker to be Released, Thus Giving Prisoners a Future Blueprint of How To Get Out of Jail
Khader Adnan, an Islamic Jihad member who has been on a hunger strike after being detained by Israel, to be released in two weeks.
Israeli authorities have agreed to release Khader Adnan, a Palestinian Arab administrative detainee who has been on a hunger strike for the past 55 days, Haaretz reported on Sunday night.
Adnan will be released in two weeks, and will gradually begin to eat and drink in the meantime, according to the report.
Adnan has been in and out of Israeli prisons over the past several years, and has gone on hunger strike before – most recently in 2012, when he was released from prison after a 66-day hunger strike.
He was arrested as part of a crackdown on terrorists in Judea and Samaria after three Israeli teens were abducted and murdered by Hamas terrorists in Judea last June.
Arab terrorist prisoners have turned hunger striking into a pressure tactic aimed at forcing Israel to release them out of fear for their lives. Israel has several times in the past caved to the pressure and released some hunger strikers.
Some 1,550 Palestinian Arabs imprisoned in Israel ended a hunger strike in May 2012, in exchange for a package of measures which would allow visits from relatives in Gaza and the transfer of detainees out of solitary confinement.
