UN calls on Israel to release Palestinian prisoners held under administrative detention or bring charges against them if any exists

Stephane Dujarric made the demand at a press conference on Saturday, stressing that the UN is closely monitoring the situation of the prisoners held under the “administrative detention,” including prominent French-Palestinian human rights defender Salah Hammouri.

“We are closely following the situation of Mr. Hammouri and other Palestinian administrative detainees held by Israel. We’re aware that there are about 30 detainees, including him, who’ve recently ended their hunger strike, which had been going on since September”
