RAMALLAH, Thursday, April 7, 2022 (WAFA) –Israeli authorities’ use of administrative detention against Palestinians has been recently rising, with a total of 400 detention orders issued since the beginning of 2022, today said the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) in a statement.

PPS noted that 210 orders were issued against Palestinian detainees for the first time, while 190 detainees had their administrative detention renewed.

There are some 500 Palestinian detainees being held under administrative detention in Israeli jails, a controversial Israeli practice that allows the detention of Palestinians without charge or trial for up to six-month intervals that can be renewed indefinitely.
