Dear Petitioner,

The EU is following closely the situation of Palestinian detainees. The EU has raised repeatedly with Israeli authorities the conditions under which Palestinians are held in administrative detention, including by highlighting that under international law, detainees have the right to be informed about the reasons underlying any detention and to have the legality of their detention determined without undue delay. You will have also seen the tweets issued by the EU Representative Office in Jerusalem on 19 October and 5 November, and by EU Special Representative for Human Rights on 16 November:

The EU welcomes the fact that several detainees have recently suspended their hunger strike, after reaching agreements on their release. The EU remains concerned about the situation of the remaining detainees who have continued their hunger strike for a very long period.
