West Bank, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation authorities have transferred a Palestinian citizen to administrative detention, holding him without charge for a renewable period of six months.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club said that the Israeli military court of "Ofer" has issued a six-month administrative detention order against Adham Hanaysha.
Hanaysha, from Qabatiya town in southern Jenin in the occupied West Bank, has been jailed since 10 May by the Israeli occupation authorities.
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.
