Israel has issued administrative arrest warrants against dozens of Palestinian detainees, imprisoned them without trial or seized a group of rights.
The Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) said on Sunday that 35 Palestinian detainees received administrative detention orders – ten of whom received an administrative order for the first time – and the remaining 25 have renewed their orders.
Israel says that administrative detention is meant to allow authorities to keep suspects while they continue to collect evidence, with the aim of preventing attacks in the meantime.
The policy has been criticized by Palestinians, human rights organizations and members of the international community who say that Israel is abusing the measure, even subjecting children to administrative detention.
The UN in July regretted Israel for its use of administrative detention, especially by using the punitive measure against hundreds of Palestinian children.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Council al-Hussein criticized the "administrative detention" system under which Israel currently has an estimated 440 children.
"Israel must immediately charge or release them all," said Zeid, Zeid, via video link, calling the Israel system a "fundamental violation of human rights."
"It must be absolutely clear that international law requires that detention be used only for children as a last resort," he said.
"And for children or adults, detention without trial, evidence that is often kept secret, under often indefinitely renewable administrative detention orders, is contrary to Israel's obligations under international law and must be terminated."
