«Israel» Issued 50k Detention Orders for Over 50 Years
The apartheid "Israeli" entity's authorities have issued 50,000 so-called "administrative detention" orders against Palestinians since 1967; the year when the entity occupied the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Commission for Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs said Monday.
The Commission explained that the number of "administrative detention" orders has increased sharply since 2002, noting that the detainees lose months or years of their lives inside the "Israeli" occupation cells without trial and continue to be brought before the courts without any sentence or charge.
According to the Commission, there are currently 427 Palestinians held in administrative detention.
The Palestinian prisoners in administrative detainees announced on February 15 a boycott of "administrative courts" to protest the continued and increasing use of "administrative detention" against them.
The Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies called on Human Rights and International bodies to pressure the "Israeli" entity to abide by the Geneva Conventions provisions and international humanitarian law and respect the Palestinian prisoners' rights.
The Center's director, Raafat Hamdouneh said in a statement on the occasion of the Palestinian Prisoners' Day that the prisoners' conditions are difficult and could explode at any moment due to the deteriorating living conditions in light of the daily abuses committed by the so-called "Israeli" Prison Service and the "Israeli" apartheid regime against them.
He added that there are nearly 6,500 Palestinian prisoners who are detained in intolerable situations, where visits are prohibited, books and education are banned, the food is poor and their health is neglected.
