Khader Adnan celebrates his release following a 55-day hunger strike in Israeli prison

IOF release prisoner Khader Adnan hours after his re-arrest in Jerusalem

Bethlehem / PNN
The Palestinian Prisoners Club on Tuesday morning said that Israeli Occupation Forces have released ex-administrative prisoner, Khader Adnan hours after his re-arrest from Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem last night, two days after his release on Sunday.

After about an hour of detaining Adnan, the Palestinian Prisoners Club said in a statement that the Palestinian military engagement exerted efforts to receive the freed prisoner, Khader Adnan, from the Israeli detention after his arrest in Jerusalem, and to transport him to his home in Arraba village near Jenin within the next hour.

IOF said that they might release Adnan after a couple of days following a targeted open-ended hunger strike that lasted about 60 days where he reached a dangerous health condition — which ultimately prompted the IOF to release him.

Israel has detained the 37-year-old father of six for ten times throughout a total of 6 years of arbitrary imprisonment, which can imprison Palestinians indefinitely for renewable six-month intervals.

He has previously been on longer hunger strikes and refused food for 66 days back in 2013.
