The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) said the Israeli government renewed the administrative detention of Shorouq al-Badan, 25, for six more months, on Monday, only two days before her scheduled release, the Palestinian News and Info Agency (WAFA) reported.

Badan, from Bethlehem, was arrested July 2019, and was supposed to be released after fulfilling her six month sentence, under administrative detention, instead she was slammed with another 6 months behind bars.

In addition, the Israeli authorities extended the detention of Alaa Abu Jazar, 43, from Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, who was imprisoned in 2003 for ‘resisting the Israeli occupation’.

According to the PPS, Abu Jazar’s 17 year sentence was supposed to end on Tuesday, but Israeli authorities instructed the Abu Jazar family to remove the homecoming tent, and that he will remain in detention for at least two more days to undergo interrogation.
