ICRC statement on the death of Mr. Khader Adnan
The ICRC stands ready to support the return of Mr. Adnan’s body, should it be asked to do so by the involved parties, in accordance with our exclusively humanitarian mandate.
We have been in contact with the relevant authorities in relation to Mr. Adnan’s detention and hunger strike since February 2023. The ICRC visited Mr. Adnan four times in March and April 2023 and delivered news to his family. ICRC delegates visited Mr. Adnan to monitor his condition and treatment in line with our ongoing activities in places of detention in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory.
