Palestinian detainee Mohammed Allaan, who has been on a hunger strike for nearly 60 days, slipped into unconsciousness on Friday morning.

Allaan also suffered convulsions and hallucinations. Consequently, doctors began resuscitation and artificial respiration – the first medical action performed on Allaan since his hospitalization at the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon earlier this week.
