  Palestinian Female Journalist Placed under Administrative Detention in
  Israel

December 16, 2019
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Israeli authorities today issued an administrative detention order 
for a period of four months against Palestinian journalist Bushra 
al-Taweel, 26, who was detained last week at her family home in 
al-Bireh, Ramallah’s twin city, said the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS).

This brings the number of Palestinian women held in administrative 
detention to three, including Shorouk al-Badan, from Bethlehem, and Ala 
al-Bisher, from Qalqiliya.

    IOF arrested the Palestinian woman, Bushra Al-Taweel, after 6 days
    of the release of her father from "Israeli" occupation jails.

PPS said Taweel had been arrested by the Israeli occupation three times 
before her current detention and since 2011 when she was sentenced to a 
prison term of 16 and a half months and was released as part of a 
prisoners’ exchange deal.

In 2014, the Israeli military re-arrested her to serve her previous 
sentence.

In 2017, Taweel was arrested again and place in administrative detention 
under the pretext of secret evidence.

Her detention lasted for eight months, until she was arrested once again 
on December 11, days after the release of her father, Jamal al-Taweel, 
former mayor of al-Bireh who served 20 months in administrative 
detention for his role in the resistance.

Taweel’s mother had also served time in Israeli detention for her 
resistance to the occupation.
