Gaza22Apr8RAMALLAH (PNIC):- Israeli authorities issued administrative detention orders -- imprisonment without charge or trial based on undisclosed evidence -- for 27 Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons since the start of June, according to a statement released on Thursday by the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

Mahmoud al-Halabi, a lawyer from PPS, said that the majority of the orders issued were extensions of detention orders for Palestinians who had already spent months or years in prison under the controversial Israeli policy.
According to al-Halabi, Israeli authorities extended detention orders for the following prisoners by three months:
- Hassan Hassanin Shuka from the Bethlehem district
- Yazan Muhammad Shalbaiya from the Ramallah district
- Mahmoud Kamal al-Razi from the Jenin district
- Luay Sami Ashqar from the Tulkarem district
- Muhammad Faisal Abu Sakha from the Jenin district
- Usama Khalid Yamen from the Nablus district
- Khalid Mansour Abd al-Nabi from the Hebron district
- Naji Hamdi Abu Khalaf from the Hebron district
The administrative detention order for Majdi Abd al-Qadder Uweidat was also extended for two months, al-Halabi said.
Meanwhile, administrative detention orders were extended for four months for nine Palestinian prisoners, identified by PPS as:
- Ibrahim Jack Abd al-Muhsin from the Ramallah district
- Ali Taqi Tawfiq from the Tulkarem district
- Saadi Mahmoud Khdeirat from the Hebron district
- Muhammad Ghassan Najdi from the Tulkarem district
- Uraib Walid Salem from the Ramallah district
- Ahmad Fayez Saadi from the Jenin district
- Awwad Mahmoud Asakra from the Bethlehem district
- Sami Fayez Sarhan from the Hebron district
- Ahmad Sami Warda from the Ramallah district
Al-Halabi added that two Palestinian prisoners had their orders extended for six months, identified as Ahmad Abd al-Basit Abu Rayya from the Hebron district and Iyad Salama Dibs from the Bethlehem district.
Three prisoners were also sentenced to four months of administrative detention for the first time, according to al-Halabi, who identified the prisoners as Abd al-Aziz Mahmoud Mubarak from Ramallah, Omar Muhammad Baraqa from Jericho, and Bassam Abd al-Rahim Hasmad from Silwad.
Nadim Ibrahim Sabarna from Hebron, Nasim Fadil al-Rifai from Hebron, Muath Muhammad Souman from Bethlehem, and Hamouda Akram Jabir from Hebron were all sentenced to six months of administrative detention for the first time, according to al-Halabi.
While Israeli authorities claim the withholding of evidence during administrative detention, which allows detention for three- to six-month renewable intervals, is essential for state security concerns, rights groups have instead claimed that the policy allows Israeli authorities to hold Palestinians for an indefinite period of time without showing any evidence that could justify their detentions.
Rights groups say that Israel's administrative detention policy has also been used as an attempt to disrupt Palestinian political and social processes, notably targeting Palestinian politicians, activists, and journalists.
According to prisoners’ rights group Addameer, 6,200 Palestinians were detained by Israel as of May, 490 of whom were held in administrative detention.
