Administrative detainees to boycott military courts

Feb. 22, 2012 4:10 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 22, 2012 4:10 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The Palestinian prisoners society said Wednesday that administrative detainees are set to boycott Israeli military courts in protest against the practice of detention without charge.

Detainees told the group that Khader Adnan's struggle has created an opportunity for them to fight against the practice of administrative detention.

It is unclear exactly what action prisoners are planning to take.

There are an estimated 307 Palestinians in Israeli administrative detention -- held without charge -- in Israeli jails.
