RAMALLAH, Thursday, August 12, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities re-arrested today a Palestinian man 24 hours after his release from prison after serving 16 years behind bars, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS).
It said Hamza Halayqa, from al-Shyoukh town in the south of the West Bank, was released yesterday after completing his 16-year prison term for resisting the occupation.
However, the occupation forces raided his house at dawn today, searched it thoroughly using police dogs, and then took him to prison. As a result, his mother suffered a health setback.
The PPS accused the Israeli occupation authorities of deliberately re-arresting Palestinians after their release from prison, particularly in Jerusalem, to impose conditions that restrict their attempt to have a normal life after regaining their freedom and to force them not to hold any celebrations their families prepare for them after their release from captivity.
