(CNN) — Salwa Salah was 16 years old when she was arrested by Israeli forces and jailed for seven months.
Israeli court minutes said Salwa Salah, 16, had been involved in “planning military operations.”
To this day she says she does not know her crime and is struggling to get her life back on track.
She was released shortly before her final school exams but was unable to catch up and now has to re-sit before she can go to university.
Salah was held under administrative detention – detention without charge or trial. It is legal under international law which permits its use only in exceptional cases to protect the security of a state.
But human rights groups say Israel abuses this right.
A report released Wednesday by human rights groups B’Tselem and HaMoked has called on Israel to release the detainees or charge them. They say there are currently 335 Palestinians being held under administrative detention, three of them women, one a minor.
