Wife of Adnan: He is weak but not in a coma

JENIN, (PIC)-- The wife of hunger striker Sheikh Khader Adnan has said that he was adamant on continuing in his struggle to the finish but denied that he was in a coma.

The wife, Um Abdurahman, told the PIC reporter on Tuesday that the Sheikh was very weak and could not move but did not lose consciousness.

“He is always dizzy and frequently vomits but his morale is high and his will is of steel,” she said of her husband’s health condition.

She said that the Israeli court ruling that ordered his detention for four months and refused his lawyer’s request for his release made him more determined to continue in his hunger strike that entered its 59th day.

Um Abdurahman asked the media and all official and private sectors in Palestine and outside to stand beside her husband who is struggling on behalf of all prisoners.

Hamas MPs in the West Bank participated in a sit-in on Tuesday in solidarity with Adnan, an Islamic Jihad leader, and expressed surprise at the Arab official silence toward his case.

They asked the world community to intervene and pressure Israel to free Adnan and their kidnapped colleagues, who were detained in violation of the international laws and norms.

They called for internationalizing the issue of Palestinian prisoners and raising their issue at all international platforms and humanitarian organizations.
