All the hunger strikers are protesting against their “administrative detention”: the practice of detention without charge or trial, as based on files to which neither the detainee nor their lawyers have access.

Since the beginning of 2021, the occupation authorities have issued 869 administrative detention orders, including four against minors. The number increased massively from May onwards, with 200 such orders issued in May alone.
Israel currently holds approximately 4,850 Palestinian prisoners, including 225 children and 41 women, plus 550 administrative detainees.
