50 Palestinians ordered imprisoned without charge or trial under Israeli administrative detention

Israeli occupation forces issued orders for imprisonment without charge or trial under administrative detention against 50 Palestinians in recent days, said Palestinian lawyer Mahmoud Halabi of the Palestinian Prisoners Society.

Among the Palestinians ordered to six months imprisonment without charge or trial was Khalida Jarrar, Palestinian national leader and leftist parliamentarian, as was fellow Palestinian Legislative Council member Ibrahim Dahbour, whose administrative detention was extended for 4 months. Palestinian student leader Kifah Quzmar‘s administrative detention was also renewed for an additional 4 months. Ghassan Zawahreh, former long-term hunger strike and the brother of Palestinian martyr Moataz Zawahreh, killed as he protested the occupation by Israeli occupation forces, was ordered to 6 more months in administrative detention.

There are approximately 500 Palestinians held under administrative detention orders out of 6,200 total Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails. Administrative detention orders are issued for one to six months at a time and are indefinitely renewable; Palestinians can spend years in prison with no charge and no trial under these orders.

Israel’s use of administrative detention violates international law and conventions, including the Geneva Conventions and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The administrative detention orders were issued against the following Palestinians:
