JNS.org – Israel’s State Attorney’s Office on Monday offered to release hunger-striking Palestinian administrative detainee Mohammad Allan on condition that he be deported for four years.

The offer was made in response to the prisoner’s petition to the Israeli High Court of Justice that he be released due to his rapidly deteriorating medical condition. It is considered to be a lenient offer, as security officials have said Allan’s release constitutes a clear security risk.

Allan, an Islamic Jihad terrorist operative, is hospitalized in critical condition at Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon, where he is in a medically induced coma. He has not eaten in more than 60 days.

Attorney Jamil Khatib, who is representing Allan, immediately rejected the release offer.
