Israel Denies Appeal For Releasing Hunger Striking Administrative Detainee

The Israeli High Court denied an appeal for the release of Palestinian detainee, held under the arbitrary Administrative Detention order, and started an open-ended hunger strike 18 days ago. He is among sixteen Palestinian detainees holding hunger strikes.

The Palestinian Detainees Committee stated that the court denied an appeal filed on behalf of Salem Zeidat, 40, from Bani Neim, east of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

It added that the Israeli prosecutor’s office tried to bargain with the detainee by offering to impose a three-month Administrative Detention order.

The committee stated that Zeidat rejected the offer, and said that he is determined to continue the hunger strike demanding to be released, especially since he is held under these arbitrary orders without charges or trial.

It is worth mentioning that sixteen Palestinian detainees are ongoing with the hunger strike, 15 of them protesting their continued arbitrary Administrative Detention orders.
