Adnan, 33, has been refusing to eat since mid-December following his arrest in the occupied West Bank. He is being held under so-called “administrative detention”, which means Israel can detain him indefinitely without trial or charge.

The Islamic Jihad group, which advocates the destruction of the state of Israel, has said it will escalate violence if Adnan dies, following reports that his health was deteriorating. "We are all Khader Adnan," chanted crowds gathered in the Gaza Strip, with activists from the main political parties joining forces in a rare display of Palestinian unity.

Mr Adnan's lawyers have submitted a petition for his release to Israel's Supreme Court, but no date has been set for a hearing. The situation was urgent, lawyer Mahmoud Kassandra said. Palestinian officials said many other prisoners in Israeli jails had started hunger strikes to support Adnan, including Hassan Salama, a senior armed commander of Hamas who is serving life terms for masterminding suicide bombings against Israelis.

The PHR rights group said Adnan could die even if he broke his fast. "There is a risk to his health even if he starts eating now because his system has got used to not having any food at all," a spokesman said.

    It is a sorrow of matter that Adnan, 33, has been refusing to eat since mid-December following his arrest in the occupied West Bank. He is being held under so-called "administrative detention," which means Israel can detain him indefinitely without trial or charge.

    She told me she just didn’t see herself as a leader and didn’t realize that other people at the school saw her as a leader as well
