Jordanian prisoner to be released after 20 years in Israeli detention

RAMALLAH, Sunday, June 6, 2021 (WAFA) – Jordanian prisoner in Israeli jails, Abdullah Noah Abu Jaber, 44, is scheduled to be released today after serving 20 years in Israeli detention, the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) has said.

Abu Jaber, who is from al-Baqaa Camp, lost his mother, father and sister while he was imprisoned. Notably, his family was only allowed to see him twice during the two decades. He’s the longest-serving Jordanian prisoner in Israeli prions.

Abu Jaber undertook several hunger strikes during his imprisonment, the most prominent of which was a 70-day hunger strike which began in late 2015 and ended in early 2016.

Abu Jaber is one of 22 Jordanian prisoners detained by the Israeli occupation authorities for their activism in the resistance of the Israeli occupation.
