Palestinian administrative prisoners continue boycott of Israeli courts for 16th day
Palestinian administrative prisoners demand an end to the arbitrary Israeli administrative detention policy.
Approximately 5000 Palestinian administrative prisoners in the Israeli occupation prisons continue their boycott of the occupation courts for the 16th consecutive day as part of their “Our Choice Is Our Freedom” campaign.
In a statement, the Prisoners Club clarified that the decision was in response to an escalation policy pursued by the Israeli occupation over the last year, with the number of administrative detention orders issued against former prisoners and new detainees reaching 1,595.
Among the administrative prisoners are four minors and a female. The highest number of administrative detention orders was issued during May 2021, totaling 200. About 60 prisoners and administrative detainees went on hunger strikes, mostly against their arbitrary detention.
Administrative prisoners in occupation prisoners continue their boycott and a Hamas spokesperson warned against the continued medical negligence of Nasser Abu Hamid.
Earlier this month, Moaz Abu Sharkh, the Spokesperson for the Palestinian Prisoners Information Office, told Al Mayadeen that the campaign “Our Choice Is Our Freedom” will be launched under the hashtag #StopAdministrativeDetention.
The Prisoners Club added that the administrative detainees confirmed in a statement that they had taken a national and collective decision through declaring a comprehensive, final, and unprecedented boycott of all judicial procedures related to administrative detention.
