Jerusalem, ALRAY - Palestinian detainee Ibrahim Halabiya has resumed his open-ended hunger strike after the Israeli occupation backtracked on a deal to release him Monday.
His family said that the Israeli occupation prison authority refused to release Halabiya despite a ruling by the so-called Israeli supreme court not to extend his arbitrary incarceration.
So far, Halabiya, from Abu Dis town east of occupied Jerusalem, has been held under so-called administrative detention without charge or trial for over a year.
Held in "Ofer" prison, Halabiya had launched an open-ended hunger strike to protest his arbitrary imprisonment without charge or trial.
So-called administrative detention is a misnomer for holding Palestinians without charge or trial for renewable periods 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.
