AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli occupation authorities have extended the administrative detention of Palestinian prisoner Zawadi Sha’ban Shalalideh, 48, from Saeer in Al-Khalil province, for an additional four months on Thursday.

It was the third time his term in administrative detention was extended since he was first arrested ten months back.

Shelaledeh is a father of eight and school teacher who suffers various illnesses. He was arrested several times by Israeli authorities and currently sits in the Ofer prison.

The Israeli system allows for holding Palestinian prisoners indefinitely without an indictment for “security reasons”.

The same day, a military tribunal in the Negev extended the administrative detention period of Hamas leader Raafat Jameel Nasseif, 45, for six months, Nasseif’s family told our correspondent.

It marked the sixth time his detention term has been extended.

Nasseif has been sitting in the Negev prison since March 2009. He also suffers from health conditions.
