Palestinian Prisoner Jaradat Enters His 21st Year in Israeli Prisons

S.K | DOP -

The Palestinian prisoner Amir Muhammad Anis Jaradat, 38, from the occupied West Bank town of Silat al-Harithiya, to the west of Jenin, entered Saturday, March 11, 2023 his 21st year in the Israeli occupation prisons.

Muntaser Sammour, the director of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club in Jenin, said that the Palestinian prisoner Jaradat has been detained since March 11, 2003, on charges of resisting the Israeli occupation, and was sentenced to 26 years inside Israeli prison.

He pointed out that during prisoner Jaradat’s detention years, his father and two brothers died, and the occupation prevented him from bidding the last farewell to them.

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.
