Palestinian lawyer on hunger strike for 17 days

Muhammad Allan 17th day of hunger strike

Palestinian prisoner and lawyer Muhammad Allan entered his 17th day of hunger strike in Israeli jail on Saturday, in protest at his recent re-detention by Israeli occupation forces on June 8.

Family sources affirmed that Allan launched his strike on June 8, the day he was detained in his hometown village of Einabus in Nablus province during a predawn raid.

Allan was released from prison in November 2015 after a year-long stint in administrative detention, Israel’s widely-condemned policy of internment without charge or trial, during which time he endured a 65-day hunger strike in protest against his detention.

He was previously imprisoned for three years in two separate arrests for being allegedly affiliated with the Islamic Jihad Movement.
