The Palestinian Authority (PA) has warned that it will hold the Israeli regime responsible over the health condition of a prisoner who has gone on hunger strike in an Israeli prison.

The PA issued a statement Tuesday warning about the desperate situation of Khader Adnan, saying that the prisoner is “in danger of dying” after 36 days of protest against his imprisonment conditions.

“Israel is entirely responsible for the life of prisoners in administrative detention,” the statement said.

A father of six, Adnan was arrested in July 2014 and was sentenced to administrative detention for the 10th time in his life. His ongoing hunger strike has been described as one of the longest in history, with reports saying that he has lost a considerable amount of weight while his heart rate keeps lowering to very dangerous levels.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club said recently that Adnan is determined to continue his strike despite having been hospitalized since several days ago.

Under the administrative detention policy, imprisonment sentences can be extended for six-month periods for an indefinite number of time. This has led some prisoners to stage hunger strikes as they have no prospect of being released from notorious Israeli jails.

Reports say that at least two other Palestinian prisoners have also gone on hunger strike. The two are Mohammed Rashdan, who has been deprived of family visits, and Ayman al-Sharbati, protesting his solitary confinement.
