Deal sought to free Palestinian hunger striker from Israeli jail


On December 17th, Khader Adnan was arrested by Israeli forces in the West Bank and soon began a hunger strike citing a lack of any evidence warranting his arrest. Now on day 55 of his hunger strike, and without a charge against him, Adnan’s health status will soon become critical. Israeli and Palestinian officials are scrambling to form a deal for his release which will prevent subsequent hunger striking. With Adnan’s health in decline, it seems that Israel will have to compromise somehow to avoid international uproar and Palestinian demonstrations that the PA warns will happen if Adnan dies.
