Khalil Awadeh, 40, has been on a hunger strike since March to protest his administrative detention. Awadeh's family says he has been on a hunger strike for 170 days, living on nothing but water.

Physician Lena Kasem-Hassan of Physicians for Human Rights visited Avade at the beginning of the month and stated that he was “very thin and malnourished.” Awadeh, she said, showed signs of neurological damage, with symptoms such as memory loss, inability to concentrate, involuntary eye movement, and near-total loss of vision.

The Israeli military arrested Awadeh last December, saying he was was a member of the Palestinian terrorist group Islamic Jihad. The group is demanding the release of Awadah as part of a ceasefire agreement with Israel.

Yesterday, Knesset member from the Joint List Ofer Kasif visited Awadah.
