Palestinian Prisoner From Jenin Enters His 21st Year in Israeli Jails

S.K | DOP -

The Palestinian prisoner Mahmoud Yousef Muhammad Asfour (45) from the town of Ya`bad, south of occupied Jenin Governorate, entered Saturday, February 11, 2023 his 21st year inside the Israeli occupation prisons.

The director of the Prisoners’ Club in Jenin, Muntaser Samour, said that the Palestinian prisoner Asfour was first detained on 11/2/2003 and sentenced to 25 years in prison, noting that his father died three years ago, and the occupation prevented him from saying goodbye.

The new Israeli Government follow a systematic daily violations against Palestinian citizens, deliberate detentions, house demolitions and mandatory deportation policy in a multiplied approach in a way to suffocate and complicate Palestinian lives.

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 Palestinian detainees.
