Tuesday, 28 February 2012 Palestinian News Network

On Tuesday, lawyer Ra'ed Mahammed from the Palestinian Prisoner's Society, stated during his visit to Khader Adnan in Ziv hospital in Safad that the prisoners health condition is now stable following surgery.

According to Mahamed, Khader Adnan suffered from severe abdominal pain for two days before he was escorted to hospital for an examination. The doctors found that Adnan had an obstruction in his intestine, a consequence of 66 days of hunger strike and needed immediate medical intervention.

Islamic Jihad leader suspended his hunger strike last week, following the agreement between the societies lawyer Jawad Bolus and the public prosecution in Israel that they will not renew his administrative detention after he has finished the four month period, taking into account the interrogation period from 17th September 2011, and are now treating him until he has totally recovered.

Adnan's family said that they received a phone call at dawn from the representative of the "doctors' organization for Human rights" in which he said the emergency surgery that was performed on Adnan, due to obstruction in the arteries of the stomach, was successful. Adnan has left the operation room in the hospital where he was detained for a month.

The Palestinian Prisoners' Society called for the immediate release of Adnan and condemned the Israeli authority for the administrative detention and holds them fully responsible for Adnan's health and full recovery.
