    The Ahrar Center for Detainees' Studies and Human Rights reported
    that all of the Palestinian current administrative detainees, held
    by Israel without charges, are former political prisoners who have
    been repeatedly kidnapped and imprisoned by Israel. 

Fuad Al-Khoffash, head of the Ahrar Center, reported that Israeli is 
currently holding captive 218 detainees under Administrative Detention, 
mainly at the Negev detention camp and Ofer prison, while the rest are 
held in Majiddo, Hadarim and other prisons.

Al-Khoffash added that %80 of the Administrative Detainees are 
supporters of the Hamas movement, and that some of them spent more than 
15 years after being kidnapped and detained numerous times without charges.

He said that most of the Administrative Detainees are from the southern 
West Bank city of Hebron, followed by the northern West Bank city of 
Nablus.

Al-Khoffash said that detainee Ayed Doudeen, from Hebron, spent a total 
of 15 years in prison, including eight years under Administrative 
Detention, also detainee Nazeeh Abu 'Oon, spent 13 years in Israeli 
prisons, and has been under Administrative Detention since he was 
kidnapped last time two years ago.

Furthermore, the Ahrar center reported that elected former Minister of 
Detainee, Wasfi Qabha, has been under Administrative Detention since two 
years, and added that Israel is currently holding captive 13 elected 
legislators, including nine who are held under Administrative Detention.

The center called for local, regional and international legal actions to 
expose the ongoing Israeli violations against all Palestinian political 
detainees, especially administrative detainees, in order to ensure an 
end to the illegal Israeli practice and policies.

Detainees held under Administrative Detention do not even know what 
charges they are facing as Israel holds them under the pretext of having 
a "secret file" against them, a file that neither the detainees, nor 
their lawyers, have access to.
