Hunger striker enters coma as protest enters 60 days

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian prisoner Muhammad Allan, who has been on hunger strike for two months, lost consciousness Friday morning, the Palestinian Prisoner's Society said. The society said that Allan's health had dangerously deteriorated overnight, and that the hunger striker entered a coma after severe shivering.

They added that he is currently connected to ventilators.

Israeli authorities previously said they would make use of a controversial new law to force feed Allan if his health became critical.

However, Usama al-Saadi, a Palestinian member of the Israeli Knesset, told Ma'an: "Allan might be a martyr in hours as his health condition is very critical." more
