GAZA, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) refused to release the oldest serving detainee Sheikh Nazih Abu Oun despite his ill health.

The Palestine center for prisoners’ studies said in a statement on Wednesday that Abu Oun, 51, was arrested on 5/7/2011 and was held since then in administrative detention, without trial or charge.

Amina Al-Tawil, spokesperson for the center in the West Bank, said that the IOA threatened Abu Oun, who is currently held in Hadarim jail, that his detention would be renewed.

She said that Abu Oun, who previously served 17 years in Israeli jails mostly in administrative custody, suffers acute pain in the eyes. He was once elected as municipal council member of Jaba village, his hometown, near Jenin and was known as an activist in defense of prisoners’ rights.
