Israeli authorities issued in September administrative detention orders against 101 Palestinians currently held in Israeli jails for periods ranging between two and six months, today said the Commission of Detainees Affairs.

Some of the orders were issued against Palestinians detainees for the first time, while others had their administrative detention renewed.

Meanwhile, seven administrative detainees are currently on an open-ended hunger strike in protest against their prolonged administrative detention.

According to statistics, there are 500 administrative detainees in Israeli jails.

Administrative detention is the imprisonment of Palestinians without charge or trial at orders from a military commander and on the basis of secret evidence. The order normally goes for six-month periods, indefinitely renewable by Israeli military authorities.

  1. This violation of space & authoritarian misuse of power is totally unconstitutional. Happened 2 me once -baby sitting my 2 nieces driving into carport- they locked themselves in the car-my front door- kicked in & a burglar inside hissed at me like an evil snake- I let out a blood curdling scream & ran & legs went wobbly with fright & I fell on the lawn. Surprise I looked up & burglar did a massive hurdle over my body & sprinted off like an Olympic sprinter. My rules have always remained clear & unchanging 2 protect my personal space- I had friends as hens & a roosters at 5yrs & 60 yrs later I have friends as hens & a rooster THEY ARE DAILY MY HAPPY PEACEFUL SPACE. They lay me beautiful eggs
