Abstract: Administrative detention is one of the several practices that the state of Israel uses against the Palestinian people. It is based on the military order number 378 and its amendments, rather than a judicial decree; which allows the detention of a person for a certain period of time, which is usually six months. It is known as internment or imprisonment of individuals without charge or trial. The use of this measure by Israel is affected by the surrounding situation in the occupied territories and Israel for example, during the first intifada, the number of administrative detainees totalled 15,000, while in September 1993 at the time of signing the Declaration, during the Oslo Process there were around 277 administrative detainees. After the second intifada in September 2000 the number of administrative detainees raised from 9 up to 1,700. According to international law, the arrest and detention of persons without trial is permitted only in situations of unusual and absolute necessity. International regulations have laid out clear restrictions and guidelines governing the use of detention without trial, which emphasize above all that administrative detention is a preventive measure.
