GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian administrative detainees entered on Sunday, May 25, 2014, the 32nd day of their hunger strike, which is mainly aimed at pressuring their jailers to release them.
135 prisoners administratively detained in different Israeli jails had started last April 24 a mass hunger strike in protest at their illegal imprisonment and poor incarceration conditions, and later dozens of other detainees joined with them as an act of solidarity.
The Israeli occupation army and its intelligence agency use the administrative detention policy to suppress the freedom of Palestinians at the pretext of having secret files condemning them.
The administrative detainees’ lawyers are also not allowed to see these alleged files to defend their clients, who are either lawmakers, human rights activists, attorneys, business men or university students.
Since Palestine came under occupation, thousands of innocent Palestinians have been administratively detained for extended periods of time without indictment or trial.
