Released hunger striker Muhammed Allan speaks to Al Arabiya
Friday, 6 November 2015
After a year of detention without charge or trial, and a two-month-long hunger strike that nearly killed him, Muhammad Allan was released from Israeli custody.
Allan, a 31-year-old lawyer, was among several Palestinians who went on hunger strike earlier this year to protest their detention without charge or trial on renewable orders handed down by Israeli military courts.
This practice, known as administrative detention, is routinely used by Israel against Palestinians, depriving them of their fundamental rights.
