Thousands of Palestinians gathered on Sunday in protest of the Israeli policy of administrative detentions, says Anadolu Agency.

The protesters in Gaza carried banners and chanted slogans calling for the freedom of prisoners held in Israeli jails.

Some protesters also burned the flags of the USA and Israel.

The policy of administrative detention allows the Israeli authorities to extend the arrest of a prisoner without charge after the expiry of a sentence for a period of six months.

Six Palestinian inmates tunneled out of the high-security Gilboa Prison in northern Israel on September 6. Israeli forces, however, have managed to capture four of them after a manhunt.

The remaining two are still in hiding.

There are around 4,850 Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons, including 41 women, 225 children, and 540 “administrative detainees,” according to observers.
