JENIN (Ma'an) -- Palestinian prisoner, Khader Adnan, 40, continues his open hunger strike for the 40th day in a row, protesting his "arbitrary" detention by Israel.

The prisoners' rights group Muhjat al-Quds Foundation said that Adnan started his open hunger strike on September 2nd, demanding his immediate release.

Locals reported that the Israeli authorities continue to prevent lawyers from meeting with Adnan since September 17.

Adnan, from the Arraba town in the northern West Bank district of Jenin, has previously went through two major hunger strikes, one was a 66-day long hunger strike in 2012 and another 55-day long in 2015, protesting his administrative detention. However, Adnan is not currently being held in administrative detention.

Israeli forces had detained Adnan on December 11th, 2017 accusing him of incitement.
