The Israeli occupation military courts issued 40 administrative detention orders to imprison Palestinians without charge or trial since the beginning of October 2017, reported Palestinian lawyer Mahmoud al-Halabi of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society.

There are currently over 450 Palestinians detained without charge or trial under indefinitely renewable administrative detention orders issued on the basis of secret evidence. Palestinians can spend years at a time imprisoned with no charge under repeatedly renewed administrative detention orders.

Among those who received renewed administrative detention orders was Seif al-Idrissi, the Palestinian youth activist previously jailed by the Palestinian Authority along with Basil al-Araj and four other comrades; al-Idrissi’s imprisonment without charge or trial has been repeatedly extended. Saleh Jaidi, the Palestinian youth activist in Dheisheh refugee camp, was also ordered to 6 months in administrative detention.
