Mohammed Allan went on hunger strike two months ago in protest at his detention+ READ ARTICLE
(JERUSALEM) — A lawyer for a Palestinian detainee on hunger strike says his client has ended his protest fast, a day after Israel’s top court suspended his detention.
Lawyer Jamil Khatib said Mohammed Allan ended his strike on Thursday.
Israel’s Supreme Court on Wednesday suspended a detention order against Allan, who launched the hunger strike more than two months ago to protest his detention.
Israeli doctor Hezy Levy earlier in the day said Allan was showing “great improvement” and that he was taken off the respirator.
Israel says Allan is a member of the Islamic Jihad militant group. He denies the allegation.
