Israel issues 47 administrative detention orders in February

Abrar Hussain

Israeli occupation forces have issued forty-seven administrative detention orders against Palestinian prisoners in the first week of February, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club revealed Thursday.Of them, 41 were new while six were renewals of detentions of prisoners already held by the occupation. The administrative detention orders ranged from three to six months, and some were issued against prisoners who had already spent months and years in administrative detention, including journalist Hammam Hintash who had his detention renewed for a third time.The occupation authorities use the policy of administrative detention in order to detain Palestinians without charge for an indefinite period  of time and even refuse to reveal the charges against them, which they claim are “secret”, preventing the ability of their lawyers to defend them.
There are currently nearly 7,000 Palestinian prisoners being held in 22 Israeli occupation jails, including 350 minors, 56 women, 700 administrative detainees, 12 members of the Legislative Council.
