There were more than 440 Palestinians placed in administrative detention in Israel without charge or trial by the end of 2020, among them three minors and three women, said the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS).


It said 131 administrative detention orders were issued against Palestinians in December, the highest in one month, including 80 new orders while the rest were a renewal of existing ones.


PPS said that the Israeli occupation authorities have so far this month issued 90 administrative detention orders, most of them were a renewal of existing orders.
