Ayman Daraghma, member of Hamas’ Change and Reform Bloc, was kidnapped from his home in March 2009 and never faced charged.

He was instead placed under Administrative Detention until he was sent, on Tuesday, to the Ofer Israeli Military court.

Last week, Israeli soldiers abducted legislators Mahmoud al-Ramahi and Hatem Qfeisha.

Meanwhile, detained Legislators Bassem al-Zaarir from Hebron, and Abdul-Jabbar Foqaha from Ramallah, received renewed administrative detention orders for the fifth consecutive time. Their detention was extended by four more months; no charges were presented against them.

Currently, the number of elected Palestinian legislators, imprisoned by Israel, stands at nine.
