Tubas, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation authorities have extended the arbitrary detention of a Palestinian man held without charge for the third time.

An Israeli military court extended the administrative detention of Palestinian detainee Mustafa Bani Odeh for another four months for the third time in a row.

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.

According to the Asra Media Office, the Israeli occupation army detained Bani Odeh during a raid on his home in Tammun town, south of Tubas in the northern occupied West Bank, on 30 May 2022.

One week after being moved to the "Al-Jalama" detention facility for questioning, the Israeli military court of "Salem" issued Bani Odeh a six-month administrative detention order.

The Israeli occupation intelligence service demanded Bani Odeh's arbitrary detention be extended for another six months just two days before his first administrative detention order was set to end.

A married father of four, Bani Odeh had been detained several times and jailed for a total of nine years by the Israeli occupation authorities.

During his imprisonment, the Israeli occupation authorities prevented Bani Odeh from bidding farewell to his son, Mamoun, 18, who died in December 2022.
