Palestinian lawyer starving for one month in Israeli lock-up

Mohamed Allan hungerstrike 30 days

Palestinian lawyer Mohamed Allan has been on an open-ended hunger strike for 30 days running to protest arbitrary detention and mistreatment in Israeli jails.

Allan was due to be brought before an Israeli court on Thursday evening.

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

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 in the same year, after he had served an administrative term of up to 12 months.
