Palestinian Prisoner Completes 30 Years Behind Israeli Prison Bars

S.K | DOP -

The Palestinian prisoner Mohammad Falnah, 58, from the Ramallah town of Saffa completed Saturday, November 19, 2022 30 years behind Israeli prison bars.

Falnah was first detained on November 19, 1992 with the charge of resisting the Israeli occupation and then was sentenced to life imprisonment.

He was supposed to have been released in a US-brokered deal in 2014 if Israel did not renege on the deal and kept him and several other long-serving freedom fighters behind bars.

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.
