IOA sentences two MPs, 20 others to administrative detention
Al Qassam website- Nablus- The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) sentenced 22 Palestinian detainees to administrative detention, including two Hamas lawmakers, on Tuesday.
Osama Makbul, a lawyer with the international Tadamun foundation for human rights, said that the Israeli military commander in the West Bank ordered the detention of those 22 detainees at the request of the Shabak.
He said that MPs Yasser Mansour, from Nablus, and Emad Nofal, from Qalqilia, were among those ordered under administrative custody, without trial or charge, for six months. He added that both were arrested from their homes three days earlier for participating in pro-Gaza activities.
The lawyer said that the other detainees were from various West Bank areas including Jenin, Al-Khalil, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Salfit, Jerusalem, and Qalqilia and were sentenced from three to six months administrative imprisonment.
The foundation had warned a couple of days ago that the Israeli military prosecution was planning to demand the administrative detention of 30 Palestinian detainees for participating in pro-Gaza rallies and marches, a thing that happened over the past 24 hours.
