The state on Wednesday offered to release the hunger-striking Palestinian prisoner Muhammad Allan in early November if he agrees to end his life-threatening protest.

According to Allan's attorneys, the state made the offer just before Wednesday's planned hearing before the High Court of Justice.

Allan is currently being treated at Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon, where doctors say he is in serious condition.
