Gaza13JuneJENIN (PNIC):-The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) on Sunday night held the Palestinian former minister and leader in Hamas Movement Wasfi Qubaha in administrative detention without charge or trial.

Family sources affirmed to the PNIC reporter that Qubaha was sentenced to four months in administrative detention only few days after his detention.

The former minister was arrested from his house in Jenin few days ago only a month after his last release from Israeli jails.

Administrative detention is the imprisonment of Palestinians without charge or trial and on the basis of secret evidence for up to six-month periods, indefinitely renewable by Israeli military courts.

Palestinian detainees have continuously resorted to open-ended hunger strikes as a way to protest their administrative detention and to demand an end to this policy, which violates the international law.
