UN renews call for Israel to end detention of Palestinian lawyer Salah Hammouri

United Nations Secretary-General spokesperson Stephane Dujarric renewed his calls for Israel to either release Palestinians under administrative detention or bring charges against them if any exist.

He drew particular attention to the case of human rights lawyer 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,”

Dujarric said at a press briefing
