Ramallah, 28 Dzulhijjah 1436/12 October 2015 (MINA) – The Israeli occupation courts extended the detention of 122 Palestinian detainees on allegations of underway investigation procedures, a human rights group reported Sunday (11/10).
According to the Palestine Prisoners Society (PPS), Israel’s Ofer court extended the prison-terms of dozens of Palestinian prisoners held in different occupation jails, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
The Salem court also extended the sentences of 20 Palestinian inmates while the occupation court in Ashkelon ruled for extending the incarceration of 16 prisoners.
At least 11 more Palestinian detainees have reportedly been subjected to similar court issues.
Observers said the extension of prison-terms for Palestinian detainees make part of a preplanned policy of collective punishment aimed to dampen Palestinians’ spirits.
The court rules have also fanned the flames of an already blistering tension sparked by the Israeli occupation army and settlers across the occupied Palestinian territories.(T/P008/R04)
