A Palestinian detainee on hunger strike has ended his protest a day after Israel‘s leading court suspended his detention, his lawyer said.
Lawyer Jamil Khatib confirmed Mohammed Allan had ended his fast at Barzilai Hospital in southern Israel.
Israel’s Supreme Court on Wednesday suspended a detention order against Allan, who launched the hunger strike more than two months ago to protest against his detention.
Israeli doctor Hezy Levy said Allan was showing “great improvement” and he was taken off a respirator.
Israel says Allan is a member of the Islamic Jihad militant group. He denies the allegation.
