Palestinian lawyer starving for 29th day in Israeli lock-up

Mohamed Allan hungerstrike 29 days

Palestinian lawyer Mohamed Allan has been on an open-ended hunger strike for 29 days running to protest arbitrary detention and mistreatment in Israeli jails.

According to Muhjat al-Quds Foundation, prisoner Allan, arrested by the occupation forces on June 8, has embarked on an open-ended hunger strike to press for his release.

An Israeli court ruled that Allan’s remand be extended until Thursday, July 6.

The prisoner’s mother said her son initiated the hunger strike to voice his firm rebuff of his arbitrary internment in Israeli jails.

In 2015, Allan had gone on a 65-day hunger strike and was released in November during the same year after he had served an administrative term of up to 12 months.
