S.K | DOP -

The Palestinian prisoner, Muayyad Muhammad Salim Zayoud, a 48-year-old prisoner from the town of Al-Silah Al-Harithiya, to the west of Jenin, entered Sunday, September 11, 2022 his twenty-first consecutive year inside Israeli  occupation jails.

The prisoner Zayoud was detained in 2002 and given a 25-year prison sentence. His mother passed away six years ago, and the occupation prevented him from saying goodbye to her.

Zayoud`s brother, Issam has been held in an occupation prison for 16 years and has received a 25-year sentence, according to Montaser Sammour, the director of the Prisoners Club in Jenin.

It`s worth mentioning that Muayyad Zayoud, is currently detained in the Negev desert prison is married, and has two boys, Habib and Suad.

Note that 4,500 Palestinians are currently detained inside Israeli occupation prisons, including 400 who have severe and chronic illnesses, 31 women, and 500 administrative detainees. In the absence of strong pressure to stop the systemic inhumane abuses, the racist and fascist policies of the Prison Service Administration have a negative impact on both groups of detainees.
