Days Of Palestine - Ramallah
The Palestinian Prisoners Centre for Studies said on Thursday that Israel has issued 1,022 administrative detention orders against Palestinians in 2019.
The group said in a statement that there were ten per cent more administrative detention orders – imprisonment without charge or trial – issued by Israeli courts in 2019 compared to 2018 when 920 orders were documented.
Spokesman Riyad Al-Ashqar said 380 new administrative detention orders were issued in 2019; the majority against previously freed prisoners, compared with 642 renewals.
Some prisoners had their detention orders renewed for the sixth time, Al-Ashqar explained.
Twenty per cent of the orders were issued I the occupied West Bank cities of hebron, Ramallah and Bethlehem.
