Palestinian administrative detainee and former long-term hunger striker Muhammad Allan, 31, suspended his hunger strike on Friday, 18 September, reported Jawad Boulos of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society, due to his health situation.

Boulos met with Allan, who was re-arrested on 16 September immediately following his discharge from Barzilai Hospital, where he was recovering from severe health consequences, including brain damage, following a 65-day hunger strike in protest of his administrative detention. He has been imprisoned since 6 November 2014 without charge or trial, and went on hunger strike to demand his release. He ended his strike after his detention was suspended by the Israeli Supreme Court due to his catastrophic health situation.

Allan’s administrative detention order was re-imposed by the Israeli military immediately upon his re-arrest and he immediately restarted his hunger strike.
