Friday October 10, 2014 19:08

Detention of MPs renewed without charge

    Israeli authorities have kidnapped 88 Palestinian citizens since the
    beginning of October, according to the Palestinian Prisoners' Club.
    Additionally, the administrative detention
    orders of six Palestinian MPs have been renewed.

According to the Palestinian News Network, Prisoners Club officials 
announced Thursday that Israeli authorities have taken 88 Palestinian 
citizens into custody since the beginning of this month, with reference 
to legal records held by the club.

The highest percentage of imprisonment was accounted for in Hebron 
<http://imemc.org/newswire?search_text=hebron&button=Search+%3E%3E> (25 
prisoners), followed by Jerusalem 
(20 prisoners).

In Bethlehem 
the number reportedly reached 11, in Salfit 
<http://imemc.org/newswire?search_text=salfit&button=Search+%3E%3E> 10, 
while the remaining prisoners were from the Nablus 
Al Bireh 
and Tulkarm 

Also on Thursday, Israeli authorities renewed the administrative 
detention of six Palestinian Members of Parliament affiliated with the 
Hamas political movement, sources in the party told Ma'an News Agency.

The decision to keep the six lawmakers in detention without trial or 
charges reportedly comes after they already completed between three and 
six months each under similar conditions.

The MPs being held captive by Israel were identified as: Basim Zaarir, 
who will be held for six more months, Omar Abd al-Raziq, 3 more months, 
Azzam Salhab, 4 more months, Ibrahim Abu Salim, 4 more months, Fadil 
Hamdan, 3 more months, and former minister Issa Jaabari, 3 more months.

As of mid-September, 33 Palestinian MPs and two ministers were being 
held in detention by Israel.

Ma'an further reports that over 7,000 Palestinians are currently being 
held by Israel, including around 500 under the policy of administrative 
detention, in which prisoners are detained without charge or trial -- a 
colonial practice which dates back to the time of British Mandate borders.
