Palestinian prisoner risks 'clinical death' as he enters 110th day of hunger strike

A Palestinian political prisoner who has been on a hunger strike for over 100 days in a protest against his administrative detention by Israel is at risk of "clinical death", according to his family.

Kayed al-Fasfous has abstained from food for the past 112 days, with his health condition severely deteriorating in the past 48 hours, his brother Khaled said.

The family said that Fasfous is facing "clinical death" after losing feeling in his lower body and spiking a high fever. He has been hospitalised at Barzilai Medical Centre in Ashkelon, southern Israel, and is being watched by security guards.

Fasfous has been steadfast about not taking supplements and has refused medical examination, including the installation of a heart rate monitor, by the Israeli hospital staff, in defiance of his continued administrative detention.
