Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories: Release Whereabouts of Mohammed Ghaith and Fadi Abbasi (UA 248/15)

The Israeli military have imposed administrative detention orders on three Palestinian 17-year-olds from East Jerusalem, allowing indefinite detention without charge. Since their arrests between 17 and 19 October, two of them have not been allowed family visits.
1) Please write immediately in Hebrew, English or your own language:
  • Urging the authorities to notify the families of Mohammed Ghaith and Fadi Abbasi immediately of the boys’ whereabouts;
  • Calling on them to release all three boys unless they are to be charged with recognizably criminal offences and tried fairly and promptly;
  • Calling on them, in the meantime, to ensure the boys are allowed to receive regular visits from their families and lawyers and are held separately from adults at all times, unless this is counter to their best interests in line with international law on the rights of the child.
