Good News! – Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories: Mohammed Allan Released (UA 181/15)
Palestinian lawyer Mohammed Allan was released on 4 November after a year of being detained without charge. The Israeli High Court had ruled in August that his detention should be suspended because his life was in danger, after 65 days on hunger strike, but the Israeli military ordered him to serve the remainder of his administrative detention order.
