After 37 days of hunger strike, Adal Musa secures his freedom in victory

On 12 September, after 37 days of hunger strike, Adal Musa has suspended his strike with another defeat for the colonial jailers. He will be released from administrative detention (Israeli imprisonment without charge or trial) on 6 November 2022, as confirmed by Muhja al-Quds.

He joined his brother, Ahmad Musa, on a hunger strike (which Ahmad, who also has a heart condition, ended four days ago) immediately upon being seized by occupation forces, which continued as they were ordered to administrative detention. These detention orders are indefinitely renewable, and hundreds of Palestinians have gone on hunger strike to seek their freedom and an end to administrative detention. There are currently 743 Palestinians jailed without charge or trial under administrative detention.

Adal, 34, from Al-Khader near Bethlehem, is married and the father of two children. He has previously been imprisoned for 7 years in occupation prisons.

On this occasion, Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network salutes Adal Musa for his courage, resistance and leadership, and the defeat he imposed on the jailer, and urges the liberation of all 4,650 Palestinian prisoners in the jails of the occupier.  This is an opportunity for all of us to escalate our work to liberate all of the nearly 5,000 Palestinian prisoners in occupation prisons and all of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
