Military Court Extends Administrative Detention Order Against PLC Member

The Israeli "Ofer" Military Court ruled, Monday, for extending the 
Administrative Detention order, for the second time, against elected 
Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) member, Mohammad Abu Teir, for 
additional six months.

Abu Teir, 60, was kidnapped on September 6th, 2011, by the Israeli 
Army from his family's home, in Kafr 'Aqab village, north of 
Jerusalem, and was placed under Administrative Detention order, 
without charges, for six months.

He was supposed to be released on Tuesday, but instead received an 
additional 6-month detention order.

The legislator was kidnapped when the Israeli army kidnapped elected 
Hamas legislators in the occupied West Bank in 2006. He was released 
in 2010 and his Jerusalem ID Card was revoked by the occupation; he 
was then kidnapped again, and was imprisoned from six months, before 
Israel issued a military order exiling him from Jerusalem.

The Palestinian Information Center reported that Abu Teir was 
repeatedly kidnapped and imprisoned by Israel, and spent a total of 
30 years in captivity.

Israel's illegal actions against the elected Palestinian officials in 
occupied Jerusalem led to the expulsion of Abu Teir along with 
Jerusalem legislators Ahmad Attoun, Mohammad Totah, and former 
Jerusalem Minister, Khaled Abu Arafa. They were kidnapped at their 
protest tend in front of the Red Cross in Jerusalem.
