Palestinian mother of five kept in Israeli jail without trial

Khadija Raba'i

An Israeli military court at noontime Tuesday sentenced the Palestinian woman Khadija Raba’i to a renewed three-month administrative term.

33-year-old al-Raba’i, from al-Khalil’s town of Yatta, in the southern occupied West Bank, got her administrative sentence renewed once again with neither charge nor trial.

Raba’i, mother of five children, was kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces from her home on November 9, 2017.

A hearing was expected to be held on January 15 to decide on her case. However a three-month administrative sentence was abruptly issued by the Israeli court prior to the expected hearing.

In administrative detention, a Palestinian is sent to an Israeli jail without having committed an offense and on the grounds that he or she plans to break the law in the future. It has no time limit and the evidence on which it is based is never disclosed. Israel employs this measure extensively and routinely, and has used it to hold thousands of Palestinians for lengthy periods of time in its dungeons.
