A number of Palestinian detainees entered today, Saturday, February 18, new year inside Israeli occupation prisons.

The Jerusalemites, Firas Ghanem, 49, and Hussam Shehadeh, 48, entered their 22 years in the Israeli occupation prisons, and they are serving a life sentence.

Ghanem was detained on February 18, 2002, and he is a father of four children. The occupation court issued an unfair sentence to life imprisonment 9 times against him, on charges of belonging to the Palestinian resistance “Fatah” movement.
