Al-Quds, MINA – Leader of Palestinian Prisoners Sheikh Khader Adnan passed away after carrying out a hunger strike for 86 days in Israeli prisons. This was quoted from Shehab on Tuesday.

The frequent hunger strikes of Palestinian prisoners are carried out in response to the increasingly stringent policies imposed by the current Israeli occupation mainly under the Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben Gvir, under the cabinet of Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.

Palestinian factions mourn the death of Khader Adnan. Hamas leader Ismail Radwan said, “We mourn the Palestinian people and the whole nation for Martyr Sheikh Khader Adnan, who represents a legend in the face of the Israeli occupation.”

Radwan added, the Zionist occupation bears full responsibility, and this crime will not go unpunished by the Palestinian resistance factions.

He also called on all international human rights and humanitarian organizations as well as the Palestinian Authority to pursue occupation responsibility for war crimes against Palestinian prisoners.
