Amnesty protest by Palestinian journalist on hunger strike in Israeli

│Middle East Council House│Amnesty International warned Tuesday that a prominent Palestinian journalist on hunger strike in protest against his administrative detention by Israel is facing an imminent risk of death.

 The Britain-based rights group said in a statement that Muhammed al-Qiq remains under detention with no charge or trial despite his deteriorating health condition. “Palestinian journalist Muhammed al-Qiq, held without charge or trial by Israel for nearly three months and on hunger strike since 25 November, is at imminent risk of death,” the statement read.

 Qiq was arrested last November at his home in the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

 The Israeli regime claims Qiq has been involved in “terrorism activities” linked to Palestinian resistance group Hamas. Qiq has lost the ability to speak after over 70 days without food.

He said he will continue the hunger strike until “martyrdom or freedom.” Amnesty has voiced serious concern that the Tel Aviv regime authorities are using the so-called administrative detention “as a method of punishing al-Qiq without prosecuting him, which would amount to arbitrary detention.”│Geopolitical International Council over Middle East-International Affairs Council over Middle East │ Consejo de Asuntos Internacionales sobre Medio Oriente-Consejo Internacional Geopolitico sobre Medio Oriente المجلس الدولي الجيوسياسي حول الشرق الأوسط - ‎المجلس الشؤون الدولية الاوسط‎ حول الشرق - │
