Doctors at Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon said on Sunday that they are working to save the life of Muhammad Allan, the Islamic Jihad operative who has declared a hunger strike that is now in its third month.

Allan, in the 63rd day of a hunger strike in protest at his being held in administrative detention without trial, lost consciousness on Friday morning and was in danger of dying.

The armed wing of Islamic Jihad, the Gazan terrorist outfit, warned on Friday that if Allan dies, the group will resume rocket attacks in the South.
