    Breaking News: Reports state Muhammad Allan has ended his strike
    after decision of the Israeli Supreme Court

Muhammad Allan's lawyer, Jamal al-Khatib, has stated that the 
31-year-old Palestinian lawyer has ended his hunger strike after 65 days 
following the order of the Israeli Supreme Court as of the evening of 19 
August, according to reports.

Allan has been held under administrative detention without charge or 
trial since November 2014 and launched his hunger strike over two months 
ago, demanding his release. He fell into a coma last Friday, from which 
he awakened yesterday. An MRI conducted today showed that Allan has 
suffered brain damage after two months without nutrients.

The order this evening from the Israeli Supreme Court indicates that the 
current administrative detention order against Allan is not valid due to 
his medical condition; however, the issue of reimposing administrative 
detention on him following his medical treatment is left unresolved, and 
instead notes that he will receive his treatment in Barzilai as a 
patient, not a prison - but must apply with the court in order to 
transfer to another hospital. Therefore, Muhammad Allan's situation 
remains critical not only medically but politically: it is essential to 
keep up loud and active solidarity demanding his immediate release and 
not allow his detention to be reimposed away from the eyes of the world.

Samidoun will provide updates on this developing news situation. Allan 
had pledged to stop all medical treatment yesterday if no resolution was 
found for his case within 24 hours; earlier this morning he rejected an 
Israeli proposal to release him on 3 November.
