Ramallah, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation is holding more than 900 Palestinians, including five children, without charge or trial, a Palestinian prisoners' rights organisation has found.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club (PPC) pointed out that most Palestinian administrative detainees are being jailed in the Naqab (Negev), "Ofer", and "Megiddo" prisons.
Over the past nine years, Israeli military courts have issued more than 12,000 administrative detention orders against Palestinians, the rights organisation added.
According to the PPC, 2022 saw the highest number of administrative detention orders issued against Palestinians, with 2,409 orders.
The NGO group explained that 76-year-old Jamal al-Nisr is the eldest Palestinian being held under administrative detention by the Israeli occupation authorities.
Nearly 80 per cent of Palestinian administrative detainees had been previously detained by the Israeli occupation army – some of whom had been jailed for years without charge.
More than 80 Palestinian administrative detainees have been boycotting Israeli military courts to protest their incarceration without charge or trial, the PPC noted.
