Muhmad Alaan Receives Visitors in Barzilai Hospital After Ending Hunger Strike


20150825085232Former hunger-striking security prisoner Muhmad Alaan remains in Ashkelon’s Barzilai Hospital to recover from his hunger strike which lasted over two months. Alaan remained determined to gain his release or strike till the death and he emerged the victor as the High Court of Justice temporarily suspended his administrative detention, after which he began eating again.

He has since become a hero and the photos show prominent members of the Israeli Arab community including MK Dr. Ahmed Tibi visiting him along with members of his family.
