The Shin Bet, Israel's internal intelligence agency, on Wednesday extended the administrative detention of Palestinian lawmaker Khaleda Jarrar, with no indictment or trial.

According to the Palestinian Information Centre, informed sources said that the administrative detention of MP Jarrar was extended for another six months at the pretext that she poses a threat to Israel's security.

Jarrar, 54, was kidnapped from her home in Ramallah last July, and she has been in administrative detention since.

She is one of the prominent officials of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and an outspoken opponent of the Palestinian Authority's policies and practices.
