Newspaper Review: Critical Health Condition of Hunger Striker Focus of Dailies

RAMALLAH, June 28, 2015 (WAFA) – The three Palestinian Arabic dailies focused in their Sunday issue on remarks made by Jawad Boulos, legal counsel for the Palestinian Prisoner’s Club (PPC), who said that hunger striking prisoner in Israeli jails Khader Adnan was on the verge of death.

Boulos told AFP he had received a call saying that the doctors at the Israeli hospital, where Khadar Adnan is currently held, were on high alert due to the severe deterioration of Adnan’s medical condition.

Al-Quds said the Israel Prison administration declined to arrive at a compromise with Adnan to terminate his administrative detention.

In a different subject, al-Quds said Israeli police quelled a protest organized by Palestinians outside al-Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron, which was held to protest an Israeli plan to settle Jewish newcomers in an abandoned Christian site near the camp.

The three dailies, al-Quds, al-Ayyam and al-Hayat al-Jadida quoted a female Israeli participant of Freedom Flotilla III, bound for Gaza to break the Israeli siege, who said she was not able to remain silent over Israeli eight-year blockade of Gaza.

Al-Ayyam and al-Quds said President Mahmoud Abbas phoned his Tunisian and Kuwaiti counterparts and condemned the terror attacks in the two countries last Friday.

The three dailies said an earthquake struck Egypt on Saturday evening and was felt across the country, as well as in Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
