admindetThe Israeli military occupation issued 43 administrative detention orders between 23 and 31 October. Among these orders were several renewals issued the morning the detainees were expected to leave and after they had made arrangements to do so, including the renewed detention of Shaher al-Rai and Sabah Faraoun.

Administrative detention is imprisonment without charge or trial, on the basis of an order issued by the military commander or the Minister of Defense, based on secret evidence. These orders are approved and essentially “rubber-stamped” by a judge. There are currently over 700 Palestinians held without charge or trial under administrative detention and over 7,000 total Palestinian political prisoners.

Of these orders, 11 were newly issued while 32 were renewals of already-imprisoned detainees’ orders. While administrative detention orders are issued for one to six months at a time, they are indefinitely renewable and Palestinians can remain in administrative detention for years.

The administrative orders were issued against the following:
