Khalida Jarrar, Palestinian national leader, leftist parliamentarian, feminist and advocate for Palestinian political prisoners, was issued a six-month administrative detention order on Wednesday, 12 July 2017. The order was signed by the Israeli occupation military commander over the West Bank.
Jarrar was seized by Israeli occupation forces who invaded her home in a pre-dawn raid on Sunday, 2 July, along with multiple other Palestinians subjected to early-morning raids including Khitam Saafin, president of the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees. Jarrar is a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, head of its Prisoners Committee and Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of Addameer.
The order came three days after Saafin was also ordered to three months in administrative detention without charge or trial. Administrative detention orders are issued for one to six months at a time, but they are indefinitely renewable. Palestinians have been jailed for years under administrative detention.
Stand with Khalida Jarrar and Khitam Saafin and demand that Israel release them, 448 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.
Help build a growing international campaign to boycott HP over the companies’ support for Israeli crimes.
