The Palestinian Prisoners Affairs Commission said that the Israeli occupation issued during the month of April 154 administrative detention orders against Palestinians.
In a statement, the commission said that the administrative detention orders range in time between two and six months, including 68 new orders and 86 renewal of existing orders.
The commission pointed out that administrative detention is a cruel policy used by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian prisoners, trying to bring false accusations against them in order to restrict them.
It stated that the Palestinian administrative prisoner in the Israeli occupation jail, Khalil Awawdeh, 40, has been on hunger strike for 68 days in a row, rejecting his administrative detention, despite suffering from headaches, pain in the joints, fatigue, irregular heartbeats, difficulty in breathing, vomiting blood, and loss of weight.
In addition, the commission reported that the administrative prisoner, Raed Rayan, 28, is also on an open hunger strike for the 33rd consecutive day, demanding his freedom. He also is reported to have health issues.
At the same time, the rest of the administrative prisoners continue their boycott of the occupation courts for 130 days.
Israel’s policy of administrative detention allows the detention of Palestinians without charge or trial for renewable intervals based on undisclosed evidence that even a detainee’s lawyer is barred from viewing.
