After completing an 8-year sentence, Israel re-arrests two Palestinian freedom fighters as they walked out of prison

JERUSALEM, Thursday, January 13, 2022 (WAFA) – Two Palestinian freedom fighters were re-arrested today the minute they walked out of the Israeli Naqab desert prison after serving their eight-year prison sentence for their resistance of the Israeli occupation, reported WAFA correspondent in Jerusalem.

She said that the Israeli security re-arrested Basel Obeidat and Anas Oweisat, both 28 years of age from occupied East Jerusalem’s Jabal al-Mukabber neighborhood, as they walked out of prison after completing their eight-year sentence.

Their families were anxiously awaiting their release to celebrate with them, said the correspondent, and were disappointed with the news of their re-arrest.

Israel often re-arrests Palestinians after their release to disrupt the family and neighborhood celebration of their freedom and holds them for a couple of days while threatening them of re-arrest if they allow the celebrations to take place.

(Updated on 7:40 pm Palestinian time: Israel later released Obeidat and Oweisat but not allowed to return to their homes in Jerusalem rather expelled to Beit Sahour, south of Jerusalem, for one week.)
