The death of hunger striker Khader Adnan underscores Israel’s cruel, often illegal treatment of Palestinian prisoners, the overuse of administrative detention, & the decades of tyrannical military orders that keep Palestinians subjugated and miserable.

Palestinian hunger striker Khader Adnan dies in prison
Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan, who’s been arrested 14 times and spent over 8 years in Israeli prisons, died today after an 87-day hunger strike – his 5th – in protest of his illegal administrative detention by Israel. Israel refused to allow his family to visit him even as his condition deteriorated. He was one of ~600 Palestinians held without charge or trial. The NYT didn’t report on the strike until he died.
