Palestinian prisoners Ahd Fayez Ali al-Netsha and Fahmi Ramadan Eid Mashahra, both from Jerusalem, entered on Monday, September 4, 2023, their 23rd and 22nd consecutive years in Israeli occupation prisons.
Al-Netsha, 41, hailing from Beit Hanina in occupied Jerusalem, entered his 23rd year in Israeli prisons.
He was arrested on September 4, 2001, and during his arrest, he was shot with live ammunition and sustained severe burns across various parts of his body. He was interrogated while bedridden.
After two years of postponed trials and investigations, the Israeli occupation court in occupied Jerusalem sentenced al-Netsha to 25 years in prison. Throughout his incarceration, he has been transferred between several prisons and is currently held in the remote Ramon Desert Prison.
Additionally, Jerusalemite prisoner Mashahra, 43, entered his 22nd year in Israeli detention.
Mashahra was detained by Israeli forces on September 4, 2002, and endured harsh interrogations at the notorious “Maskobiya” detention facility. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, 20 times over.
At the time of his arrest, Mashahra left behind his only daughter, Zeina, who was just two years old, and his pregnant wife, expecting their son, Obaida.
Mashahra has been relocated among various prisons and is currently held in “Hadarim” prison.
