Al Mezan Center for Human Rights has expressed deep concern over the excessive use of administrative detention by the Israeli occupation authorities against Palestinian detainees.
The Center reported, in a press release, that four Palestinians, of those who are administratively detained by the Israeli occupation, have launched a hunger strike in protest against the policy.
Administrative detention is an archaic legal measure, dating back to the days of British Mandate Palestine, in which citizens are detained without charge or trial for periods of up to six weeks, the orders renewable indefinitely.
The Center stressed, according to Al Ray, that administrative detention is a violation of international humanitarian law, which limits the use of this type of detention.
