West Bank, ALRAY - An Israeli military court sentenced a Palestinian to 10 months in prison and ordered him to pay a hefty fine.


According to the Asra Media Office, the Israeli military court handed a 10-month jail term and a fine of 2,000 shekels ($550) to Abood Herzallah.


The Israeli occupation army detained Herzallah after storming and ransacking his family home in Yabad town near the occupied West Bank city of Jenin on 30 November 2022.


The Israeli occupation authorities moved Herzallah to the "Al-Jalama" detention facility for questioning, where he was subjected to harsh physical and psychological torture for over two months.


An ex-detainee who had been jailed for two years and a half, Herzallah had his incarceration extended eight times without charge before the Israeli military court sentenced him to 10 months in prison.


Meanwhile, the Israeli military court of "Ofer" issued a six-month administrative detention order against Ibrahim Abbas, 24.


The Israeli occupation army detained Abbas during a raid on his home in Jenin and transferred him to the "Al-Jalama" detention facility for interrogation.


The Israeli military court ordered Abbas to be held without charge for six months based on "secret evidence" at the request of the Israeli occupation intelligence service.


Administrative detention is a widely-condemned form of imprisonment that allows the Israeli occupation to hold Palestinians without charge or trial for renewable periods of time based on "secret evidence" in a stark violation of international humanitarian law.


The Israeli occupation is holding at least 1,016 Palestinians under administrative detention without charge, including six children and one woman, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Club.
