Palestinian detainee, Bilal Ekmail, has entered 15 years of imprisonment, under very strict detention conditions, imposed by Israeli authorities.

Montaser Sammour, director of the Jenin office of the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) in northern West Bank, said that Ekmail is serving a 20-year prison sentence, and has been frequently held in solitary confinement, in addition to being deprived of family visits, over the past 15 years.

Detainees held under the arbitrary Administrative Detention orders are imprisoned without charges or trial, under so-called “secret files” that neither they nor their lawyers have access to.

Israel holds around 5,000 Palestinian detainees in various detention centers. This includes about 40 women and many juveniles.
