Ms. Shalabi’s capture is nothing new. She was held in “administrative detention” for over two years without charges before being released in October as part of the Shalit prisoner swap. That lasted a couple of months, but Israel announced a new administrative detention for Shalabi late last week, still with no charges.
Shalabi has been refusing food since her capture last week, and is on day seven. Israel is planning to detain her for six months. Last time, her “six month” detention was renewed with additional six month periods four times.
