More than 100 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli administrative detention launched a mass, open-ended hunger strike on April 24. The same day, Palestinians set up a protest tent in the city center of Nablus and have staged ongoing solidarity protests ever since.

The hunger strike is taking place in the Ofer, Megiddo and Negev prisons. It comes after Israeli authorities reneged on a promise made following the mass hunger strike of more than 2,000 in 2012 to limit the use of administrative detention to exceptional cases.

According to the Palestinian prisoner support and human rights organization Addameer, as of last month Israel was holding a total of 186 Palestinians under administrative detention out of a total 5,265 Palestinian political prisoners.

Addameer reports that:

The general demand of the hunger strikers is an end to the use of administrative detention. The hunger strikers are also specifically demanding that extensions to administrative detention orders are limited to one extension only. …

[A]dministrative detainees are held without charge are trial. They are detained on completely 'secret evidence’ and neither they nor their lawyers have access to such evidence. Some detainees have spent over eight years in prison, never knowing what was contained in the 'secret evidence’. While administrative detention is legal under international law, it must be used in very specific circumstance and on a case-by-case basis. This is clearly not the case given Israel has used administrative detention against tens of thousands of Palestinians.
