Israel’s “administrative detention” practice

With what it calls “administrative detention”, Israel can detain Palestinians for 1 to 6 months based on intelligence.

If it is decided that the detainee “is a danger to Israel’s security”, the military judge can extend the period of detention up to 5 years without even making a criminal charge.

According to the data of the Palestinian Prisoner Association, as of September 6, 2021, there are approximately 4,650 Palestinians in Israeli prisons, 520 of whom are “administrative prisoners”. About 200 of them are children.
