The Haifa District Court ordered the Israel Prison Service on Sunday to file a written response no later than tomorrow regarding a petition over the detention of al-Jazeera journalist Samer Farik Mohammad Allawi.

Allawi, the head of al-Jazeera's Kabul bureau, was arrested on August 9th on suspicion of belonging to Hamas and of carrying out actions against state security. At the time of his arrest, Allawi was attempting to cross into Jordan over the Allenby Bridge.

Allawi remains in custody in the Kishon Detention Center after Samaria Military Court ruled that his detention will be extended.

Allawi has petitioned the court to order the Prison Service to permit his doctors to visit him in prison.
