After an 86-day hunger strike in administrative detention, Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan died in an Israeli prison cell this morning. Israeli officials refused to grant Adnan his freedom despite being informed by a Physicians for Human Rights Israel medic that he was facing “imminent death.”
As Palestinians mourn the assassination of a pillar in Palestinian resistance, we call on the U.S. to act on its commitment to human rights by taking firm action. While Israel continues to commit grave human rights violations against Palestinians, potentially with U.S. resources, President Biden celebrated 75 years of the apartheid state, claiming to "work together to create a more prosperous, peaceful, and integrated Middle East" despite Israel proving itself as an apartheid regime over and over again through egregious actions over the last year alone. How is peace being created when the current circumstances lead Palestinians to prefer finding freedom through death rather than remaining imprisoned by the bonds of Israel's brutal occupation?
