A Palestinian man, from the southern West Bank city of Hebron, was moved to a local hospital, just a few hours after his release from an Israeli detention center, following 18 months of imprisonment by Israel, under arbitrary Administrative Detention orders, without charges.The detainee, Azzam Shweiki, 56 years of age, was released from the ‘Ofer Israeli prison, on Tuesday at night, and was moved to a hospital in Hebron, due to some complications, but discharged himself against medical advice.

Prior to his imprisonment under Administrative Detention, Shweiki underwent an open-heart surgery.
