Released as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap, Shalabi was re-arrested by the army on February 16, and has since been held in administrative detention without charge or trial with military authorities claiming she presents a threat to regional security. Much like Khader Adnan before her, Shalabi too has declared an open hunger strike until her release. Shalabi is also protesting having been strip-searched by a male soldier and abused by other soldiers after her arrest.
