On the first Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, residents of Nabi Saleh staged a demonstration in solidarity with the hunger striking political prisoner, Khader Adnan. Adnan, who already went through a long hunger strike back in 2012 before he was released, launched another hunger strike several weeks ago in protest of the repeated renewal of his administrative detention. Since then, his medical condition has reportedly deteriorated, and he was taken to an Israeli hospital, where he is kept cuffed to his bed. Protesters held banners with Adnan’s image and marched with the Palestinian flag. The Israeli soldiers attempted to disperse them by firing rounds of tear gas. No major injuries reported.
