Supreme Court to Discuss Petition by Terrorist Prisoner

The High Court of Justice is scheduled to discuss, Tuesday, a petition by Islamic Jihad terrorist Khadr Ednan, seeking to improve the conditions under which he is being held. Ednan has lost 30 kilograms/66pounds in a hunger strike that has lasted more than two months.

The court decided to advance its consideration of the case because of the prisoner's diminished health.
