Israeli court turns down appeal by two detained PLC deputies
The Israeli military court in Ofer has turned down an appeal by two members of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC) against extension of their administrative detention.
The Ofer court said that the six-month administrative detention against MPs Dr. Azzam Salhab and Nizar Ramadan should be enforced.
The Israeli occupation forces arrested both MPs seven months ago only few weeks after serving almost 40 months in incarceration and held them in administrative custody that was renewed recently.
