IOA deprives Jordanian detainee of family visits

Days of Palestine -

The Israeli occupation authorities have been denying Jordanian detainee Hiba al-Labadi of family visits since her arrest at the Karame crossing over a month ago.

Labadi's family said in a statement on Tuesday that they have not been able to visit their daughter since her arrest on 20/8/2019 while crossing from Jordan into the occupied West Bank to attend a wedding ceremony of a relative in Yabad village, Jenin province.

They said in a press release that she has been held since then in Petah Tikva detention center and subjected to “cruel interrogation”.

They added that the Israeli interrogators failed to press any charges against Labadi, 30, which made them seek an administrative detention order against her that is to be announced within the coming 72 hours.

The family called on human rights groups to intervene and pressure the IOA into releasing their daughter and allowing them to visit her.
