The individual, whose name has not been released, has been held in Iranian custody for an undisclosed amount of time.
The situation highlights the ongoing tensions between the United States and Iran, and the ongoing struggle of American citizens to secure their release from Iranian imprisonment.
The detained individual's hunger strike is a desperate measure, taken in the hopes of drawing attention to their situation and pressuring the Biden administration to take action.
The individual's family has issued a statement, pleading for the government to do everything in its power to secure the safe return of their loved one.
The Biden administration has yet to comment on the situation, but it is likely that they are working behind the scenes to secure the release of the detained American citizen.
