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

The use of administrative detention, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network (PPSN), dates from the “emergency laws” of the British colonial era in Palestine.

PPSN states: “Israel’s use of administrative detention violates international law; such detention is allowed only in individual circumstances that are exceptionally compelling for imperative reasons of security.”

Israel routinely uses administrative detention as a form of collective punishment and mass detention of Palestinians when it fails to obtain confessions in interrogations of Palestinian detainees.

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