Israel court rules Palestinian hunger striker to stay in jail

A hunger-striking Palestinian journalist is to remain in Israeli jail despite warnings over his deteriorating health, the country’s top court ruled Wednesday. The Supreme Court said it would not release Mohammed al-Qiq immediately but would follow his health on a daily basis. Qiq has been on hunger strike for 63 days over his detention under Israel’s administrative detention law and his organs are at risk of failure any day, his legal team says.
