Maher Younis, a Palestinian prisoner who had been recently released from jail, was summoned by Israeli occupation police on Friday for interrogations regarding the potential charges of “incitement of terrorism.”

This was following his interview with various Arab media outlets, in which he encouraged the continuation of resistance and unity among Palestinian factions until the end of the Israeli occupation.

Younis was interviewed shortly after being released from Ketziot prison, where he had been held captive for 40 years. He made his own way to the police station close to Haifa and was not taken into custody. His brother Nader commented that the inquiry took about two hours and after it was finished.

Yesterday, Israeli occupation forces detained a bus carrying about 20 activists from Jerusalem who were traveling to see Younis. The activists were then escorted to the police station and later let go.
