Hebron, ALRAY - An Israeli military court has turned down an appeal demanding not to extend the administrative detention order against Palestinian detainee Marwan Abu Fara for another four months.
The Asra Media Office said that the Israeli occupation army detained Abu Fara on 1 August 2022 after storming and ransacking his home in Surif town near the occupied southern West Bank city of Hebron.
Nine days later, the Israeli military court issued Abu Fara a four-month administrative detention order based on "secret evidence" at the request of the Israeli occupation intelligence service.
When his first administrative detention order was about to end, the Israeli military of "Ofer" renewed his detention.
His lawyer filed an appeal against the extension of Abu Fara's detention for two months, but the Israeli military court turned it down.
The Israeli occupation authorities had held Abu Fara for three years under administrative detention based on "secret evidence" without charge.
According to Palestinian figures, about 4,500 Palestinians, including 32 women and 160 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.
Among them, more than 680 Palestinians are currently being held under “Israel’s” illegal policy of administrative detention without charge or trial.
