Medical report: Adnan in danger of imminent death


RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- The Palestinian prisoner association has warned that detained Islamic Jihad leader Sheikh Khader Adnan was in danger of imminent death after 60 days of hunger strike.

The association said in a statement on Wednesday, quoting lawyer Jawad Boulus, that a medical report by a visiting doctor indicated that Adnan was in a very serious condition.

The report by doctors for human rights said that the hunger strike could lead to serious negative repercussions in the human body that could lead to heart or kidney failure, internal bleeding, liver damage, or collapse in his immune system.

The report also expected deterioration in his consciousness due to shortage in vitamins and/or brain hemorrhage. It also pointed out that a hunger strike for 70 days would not leave a hope for life, expecting sudden death as a result of the long hunger strike.
