Human rights group warns: Adnan in a coma:
GAZA, (PIC)-- The Palestinian center for the defense of prisoners has warned that detained Islamic Jihad leader Sheikh Khader Adnan was in danger of death after he reportedly went into a coma.
Ismail Al-Thawbta, the director of the center, said in a press release on Tuesday that news reports from inside the Israeli jails indicated that Adnan was in a coma after his health condition greatly deteriorated after 59 days of hunger strike.
Thawabta held the Israeli occupation authority fully responsible for the life of Adnan, adding that the policy of administrative detention, to which Adnan was protesting, was in blatant violation of the international and humanitarian laws.
He urged the Palestinian people to revolt against the Israeli repression of prisoners in general and in solidarity with Adnan in particular.
The director called on all human rights groups to intervene and pressure Israel into releasing Adnan, who is held without any charge, and asked the media to shed light on his case.
