Israel's High Court on Wednesday suspended a detention-without-trial order on hunger-striking Palestinian prisoner Mohammed Allan but said he must remain in hospital pending a decision on his future.

"Due to the petitioner's medical condition he will remain in intensive care," said the ruling, seen by AFP.

"This means that for now, owing to the hunger striker's medical condition, the administrative detention order is no longer operative."
