ISRAELI forces detained 511 Palestinians in October, including 74 children and 15 women, according to a report by prisoners’ rights groups released yesterday.
The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS), Addameer and the Prisoners’ Commission’s joint paper revealed figures showing that Israeli authorities issued 73 administrative detention orders last month.
It brings the total number of Palestinians held in administrative detention to 430. They are held without trial for periods of six months, which can be extended indefinitely and without reason by Israeli courts.
Last month, prominent Palestinian parliamentarian Khalida Jarrar had her administrative detention extended for the fourth time. However her legal team have still not seen details of the charges against her.
At the time of her arrest in April she was working on research and leading a Palestinian attempt to take Israel to the International Criminal Court (ICC) over potential war crimes.
According to the PPS around 6,000 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli prisons with 270 of those detained being under the age of 18.
