An Israeli military court decided on Monday to release Al-Jazeera journalist Samer Allawi who was detained on August 10, the Doha-based news channel said.

Allawi, a Palestinian, is Al-Jazeera's Kabul bureau chief and was arrested by Israeli security officials as he tried to cross from Jordan into the West Bank after a family visit.

An Israeli military court in the northern West Bank has accused Allawi of being a member of Hamas and of having "contacts" with the military wing of the Islamist movement, which rules the Gaza Strip.
