NABLUS, (PIC)– The Tadamun foundation for human rights said that the Israeli occupation authorities placed Sheikh Jamal Al-Tawil under administrative detention.

Osama Makbul, a lawyer with the foundation, said that Ofer military court ruled the detention of Tawil, 49, for six months at the orders of the military commander of the West Bank.

Makbul said that the Israeli prosecution briefed the judge on a secret file prepared by the intelligence after which the judge decided to hold Tawil in custody.

The Israeli occupation soldiers arrested Tawil, a former mayor of El-Bireh who had served 13 years in Israeli jails, from his home five days ago.
