Administrative detainee Muhammad Allan, who was transported to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon on Monday, has lost consciousness, Reshet Bet reported on Friday. His hunger strike has now lasted 59 days.

Allan was transported to Barzilai from Soroka Medical Center after the Hospital Ethics Committee determined that according to the Patient's Rights Law it is up to the patient to accept or refuse treatment. Allan refused to be fed or treated.

It is unclear whether the prisoner will be force fed given his current status.
