35 Palestijnen adm orders

The Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) have recently issued new administrative detention orders against 35 Palestinian prisoners including a young woman, rights group revealed.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said that the 35 detention orders, without charge or trial, were issued since the beginning of March.

The female prisoner Ihsan Dababsah, from al-Khalil, was placed under administrative detention for six months.

Dababsah was arrested for the second time on Feb. 23.

13 of the reported administrative detainees were arrested for the first time or were recently re-arrested, according to the sources.

Administrative detention is the imprisonment of Palestinians without charge or trial and on the basis of secret evidence for up to six-month periods, indefinitely renewable by Israeli military courts.

Palestinian detainees have continuously resorted to open-ended hunger strikes as a way to protest their illegal administrative detention and to demand an end to this policy which violates international law.
