NABLUS, -- The Ofer military court has renewed the administrative detention of Dr. Essam Al-Ashqar, the physics professor at the Najah university, for three more months, the lawyer of the Tadamun institute for human rights reported.

Ahmed al-Beitawi, a researcher with Tadamun, said that Ashqar was detained since 19/3/2009 and held under administrative custody, adding that this renewal was the fifth since his detention.

He underlined that the professor was suffering chronic hypertension that all medication failed to control in addition to tightening of the kidney arteries, a thing that could threaten his life without proper treatment.

Beitawi said that Ashqar's eyesight was also affected by the continued high blood pressure that could lead to total blindness if not properly addressed.

Ashqar, 52, is among the cofounders of the physics department in Najah university and had written numerous valuable international research papers. He was twice before arrested and was held in Israeli occupation jails for three years.
