Palestinian Khader Adnan was rushed into surgery on Monday evening despite giving up his 66-day hunger strike last week.
Prisoners’ rights group Addameer, which has been dealing with Adnan’s case, tweeted on Monday evening that Adnan had been taken into surgery but added that it was not clear whether his life was in danger.
BREAKING: #KhaderAdnan was just transferred to surgery. Waiting for news from Physicians for Human Rights-Israel for more details.
We have no way of knowing yet how serious #KhaderAdnan‘s condition is. PHR-Israel doctor is on the way to the hospital. Updates to come.
Adnan was in serious danger of organ failure before he ended his hunger strike on February 21 following an agreement with Israeli representatives.
Under the deal Adnan is due to be released when his so-called administrative detention ends in April.
Hunger strikers are in serious danger of irreparable damage if they go beyond 60 days. Infamous Irish hunger striker died after 66 days, the same number the Adnan completed before agreeing to the deal.
