Physicians for Human Rights Israel calls on Israel to Stop Administrative Detentions

WAFA FEB 21 2012

TEL AVIV, February 21, 2012 (WAFA) – Physicians for Human Rights Israel Tuesday called on the government of Israel to stop the practice of administrative detention against Palestinians.

“Khader Adnan is only one of 309 administrative detainees currently held in Israeli prisons, with no charges presented against them and with no ability to defend themselves in court,” it said in a statement.

“Adnan’s courageous hunger strike raised national and international awareness of the issue of administrative detentions, and we applaud his achievement,” it said.

Adnan ended his 66-day long hunger strike Tuesday night following a deal with the Israeli state prosecution that would allow his release on April 17.

“Physicians for Human rights-Israel urges the government of Israel to stop its wide use of the harmful practices of administrative detentions,” it concluded.
