RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli prison authorities renewed the administrative detention of a Palestinian detainee for the sixth time on Monday, a prisoners' rights group said.

Israeli officials from Ofer prison called relatives of Omar Barghouti to inform them that his administrative detention would be extended by another four months, Addameer prisoners group told Ma'an.

Barghouti was arrested in the village of Kobar, near Ramallah, on Oct. 24, 2010. Since his arrest, Israeli prison authorities have held him without charge for two six-month administrative detention terms and three four-month periods of detention, Addameer said.

Barghouti's son Assam is also imprisoned in Ofer's military jail, serving an 11-year sentence.

Omar's brother, Nael Barghouti, was the longest serving prisoner in Israeli jails before his release in Nov. 2011 as part of a swap deal to free Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in exchange for more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners.

Over 200 Palestinians are held in administrative detention in Israeli prisons.

Isn't administrative detention one of those things Israel derides in other countries? You know, those countries Israel calls "terrorist states?" What does that tell you?
