The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) has reported that, just two days before her scheduled release, the Israeli Authorities slapped a female Palestinian political prisoner with a new arbitrary Administrative Detention order for six additional months.

The PPS said that the detainee, Shorouq al-Badan, 25, from Bethlehem south of occupied Jerusalem, was slapped with the new order, without charges or trial.

It added that al-Badan was abducted by the army on July 15, 2019, and was slapped with an Administrative Detention order for six months.

Al-Badan was supposed to be released in two days but was informed with the new arbitrary order against her.

The PPS stated that al-Badan suffers from various complications in her abdomen, kidneys, and her nervous system.

It is worth mentioning that Israel is holding captive 40 Palestinian women, including four who are imprisoned under the arbitrary Administrative Detention orders.

Besides al-Badan, the female detainees held under these orders are Ala’ al-Bashir, 23, from Qalqilia, and was abducted on July 24th 2019, Bushra Tawil, 26, from Ramallah and was abducted on December 11, 2019, in addition to Shatha Hasan, 20, from Ramallah and was abducted on December 12, 2019.
