Palestinian prisoner completes 17 years in Israeli detention


JENIN, PALESTINOW.COM – Palestinian political prisoner in Israeli detention Ahmad Mohammad Jalamneh has completed 17 years behind Israeli prison bars, said the Palestinian Prisoner Society.

Jalamneh, who comes from the city of Jenin in the occupied West Bank, was arrested on April 24, 2003, and was sentenced 20 years in prison for his activism in the armed resistance against the Israeli occupation.

Like hundreds of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli detention, Jalamneh 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. (palestinow/wafa)
