Palestinian prisoner marks 23 years in Israeli detention


JERICHO, Sunday, April 26, 2020 (WAFA) – Palestinian political prisoner in Israeli detention Ahmad Mahmoud Ka‘abneh, 51, has completed 23 years behind Israeli prison bars, said the Palestinian Prisoner Society.

Ka‘abneh, a resident of Aqabat Jabr refugee camp, near Jericho in occupied West Bank, was arrested on April 26, 1997, and was sentenced to two life sentences in prison for his activism in the armed resistance against the Israeli occupation.

A father of three, Ka‘abneh has been denied family visitation several times by the Israeli occupation authorities as a punishment against him and his entire family.

The Israeli occupation authorities are still incarcerating more than 5,000 Palestinian and Arab prisoners for resisting its occupation of their homeland.
