  500 Palestinians Are Currently Held Under Administrative Detention

    The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has reported that the
    current number of Palestinians, held by Israel under Administrative
    Detention orders without charges or trial, has arrived to 500.

The PPS said the Hebron district, in the southern part of the occupied 
West Bank, witnessed the highest number of arrests and Administrative 
detention Orders.

It added that twelve administrative detainees, including democratically 
elected legislators, have been held under such orders for many years.

The detained legislators are Mohammad Jamal Natsha, Hatem Qfeisha, 
Mohammad Bader, ‘Azzam Salhab, Nayef Rajoub, Basem az-Za’arir, Samir 
al-Qadi, all from Hebron, in addition to Abdul-Jabbar Foqaha and Hasan 
Yousef from Ramallah, Mohammad Abu Teir and Ibrahim Abu Salem from 
Jerusalem, in addition to Abdul-Rahman Zeidan from Tulkarem.

The PPS said 208 of the 500 administrative detainees are from Hebron, 
including Ahmad Shabana, who spent eighteen years in Israeli prisons, 
including 13 years under Administrative Detention orders.

His latest arrest was on February 2 2014, and has been held since then; 
he also participated in the June 2012 61-day hunger strike, along with 
all Administrative Detainees.
Furthermore, detainee ‘Omar al-Barghouthi, 61 years of age, from the 
central West Bank city of Ramallah, has been detained since June of last 
year,

His repeated arrests led to him spending more than 25 years in Israeli 
prisons, including twelve years under Administrative Detention orders.

Israel “justifies” the use of Administrative Detention by claiming to 
have “secrets files” against the detainees, that neither the detainees, 
nor their lawyer can have access to.
