HEBRON (Ma’an) – The Israeli supreme court on Monday decided to set a limit for administrative detention of Raed Ikhlayyil from Beit Ummar north of Hebron, his lawyer says.

Mufid al-Hajj, who works at the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society, said the supreme court decided that Israeli authorities can renew the administrative detention of Ikhlayyil two more times of four months each.

After that, they can’t keep him in custody without trial.

Al-Hajj aDDED that Ikhlayyil had been jailed without trial for nearly two years.

Commenting on the decision, al-Hajj said that “once again we witness an unjust decision by the institution which should be an epitome of justice for those who suffer from obvious injustices.”

He added: “Once again, the supreme court proves that it’s an arm which legalizes the policy of oppression reflected in the administrative detention orders against Palestinian prisoners.”
