Israel extends detention of 41 prisoners in May

June 3, 2014 10:45 P.M. (Updated: June 3, 2014 10:45 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – A prisoners’ rights group said Tuesday that the Israeli authorities extended the administrative detention of 41 administrative prisoners in May, most of them for the second or third time in a row.

The Prisoner’s Society declared that 26 prisoners’ detentions were extended for six months, one prisoner for five months, 11 prisoners for four months, and three prisoners for three months.

Qaddura Faris, director of the Prisoner’s Society, said that “all of these signs show that Israel is throwing away all rules and international laws which ... is a message to the world more than it is a message to us.”
