Three prominent Palestinian activists have been ordered to additional periods of administrative detention. Palestinian journalist Hasan Safadi, youth organizer Hassan Karajah and leftist community leader Rami Fadayel, all of Ramallah, were ordered to imprisonment without charge or trial by Israeli military courts.

Fadayel, 37, has been imprisoned for 18 months under administrative detention. This is the fourth time the order against him has been renewed. He has spent over seven years in total in Israeli prisons and was ordered to another four months of imprisonment without charge or trial. He was hit with another four-month detention order on Wednesday, June 7.

Meanwhile, Hasan Safadi, a Palestinian journalist and the Arabic media coordinator of Addameer Prisoner Support & Human Rights Association was also ordered on June 8, 2017 to another six months in administrative detention by an Israeli occupation military court. He had been scheduled for release on June 8, but was instead hit with another arbitrary detention renewal.

Hassan Karajah, a prominent youth activist with the StopTheWall.orgCampaign and a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movementactivist, was seized by Israeli occupation forces on July 12, 2016 at a military checkpoint west of Ramallah. He has been held under administrative detention without charge or trial since that time. His detention was also renewed on June 7, 2017 for the third time for a four-month period.

These orders came after the Ofer military court confirmed even more administrative detention orders on Wednesday, July 7.

Demand Israel release Safadi, Karajah and Fadayel, 487 other administrative detainees and all 6,200 Palestinian political prisoners, and that Hewlett Packard companies end their contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces, and checkpoints and settlements.

Build a growing international campaign to boycott HP over its support for Israeli crimes.

Support the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
