Palestinian prisoner completes 20 years behind Israeli bars

JENIN, Sunday, July 17, 2022 (WAFA) – Mohammad Faruq Abu al-Rob, a Palestinian political prisoner serving a life sentence in Israeli prisons, completes today 20 years behind Israeli prison bars, according to a prisoner advocacy group.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said Abu al-Rob, who comes from the town of Qabatia in the north of the occupied West Bank, was arrested on this day in 2002, and was sentenced to a life in prison for his activism in the resistance of the Israeli occupation.

Like many Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, Qawasmi was held in solitary confinement and denied family visitation several times by the Israeli occupation authorities as a punishment against him and his entire family, PPS said.

The Israeli occupation authorities are still incarcerating more than 4,500 Palestinian and Arab prisoners for resisting its occupation of their homeland.
