The Palestinian Prisoner Center for Studies (PPCS) has strongly denounced the Israeli court decision to hold a hearing for hunger-striking prisoner Bilal Kayed in two months from now, describing it as a “decision to kill him.”

Spokesman for the center Riyadh al-Ashqar stated on Friday that prisoner Kayed entered the third month of his hunger strike, amid a sharp decline in his health condition.Kayed-may-not-stand-another-two-months-of-hunger-strike

Ashqar added that the Israeli higher court deliberately ignored the health condition of the prisoner and decided to look into the petition filed against his administrative detention next October, which reflected an intent to eliminate him. “Could his body stand another two months of hunger strike?”

The spokesman questioned, warning that this might lead to his certain death.
