Palestinian With French Citizenship Rearrested Immediately After His Release From Administrative Detention

12:58 PM

The Israeli authorities rearrested, Sunday, a Palestinian political prisoner with French citizenship, minutes after his release from prison after spending thirteen months under arbitrary Administrative Detention orders without charges.

The Palestinian Salah al-Hammouri, from occupied East Jerusalem, was held at the Negev Desert Detention Camp for thirteen months, under Administrative Detention orders, and was rearrested immediately after his release.

He was taken prisoner on August 23rd, 2017, and was instantly held under Administrative Detention orders. Salah is also a former political prisoner, who was held by Israel for more than six years.

It is worth mentioning that Salah is married to a French woman, and the two have a child; the Israeli authorities deported his wife to France along with their child, while at the same time denying him the right to travel, thus separating the family.

The 17-year-old Palestinian icon, Ahed al-Tamimi, who was imprisoned for eight months in an Israeli prison, was honoured by the Spanish soccer club Real Madrid, on Saturday, after being invited to visit the team’s home stadium.

Ahed arrived at Real Madrid’s home field of Santiago Bernabeu hours before the anticipated derby match between the club and Atletico Madrid.While at the stadium, Ahed met with Emilio Butragenio, a former striker for Real Madrid who currently serves as one of the club’s senior managers, and was handed a team jersey with her name and number nine printed on its back. She was accompanied by her father, Basem al-Tamimi, during her trip to Spain, where she attended several political events to discuss the Palestinian resistance movement and the experience during her eight-month imprisonment by Israel.

The Tamimi’s speak about their family’s history of struggle against occupation

In response to Real Madrid honouring Ahed, the Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman, Emanuel Nachshon, tweeted on his Twitter account that the incident was “shameful” and a “disgrace to the sport’s values.”Nachson’s tweet read “What a shame, Real Madrid accepts a terrorist that incites to hatred and violence, what is the connection between this and soccer values?”

Additionally, Israel’s ambassador to Spain, Daniel Kutner, tweeted on his Twitter saying “Ahed Tamimi does not fight for peace, she defends violence and terror, the institutions that have received and celebrated her indirectly encourage aggression and not the dialogue and understanding that we need.”

Ahed was detained on December 19, 2017 after a video went viral on social media platforms, showing Ahed slapping and kicking an armed Israeli soldier, who raided her hometown and shot her 15-year-old cousin Muhammad in the face, in the Nabi Saleh village in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

Since her detention, Ahed has received worldwide media coverage and has become the image of dozens of solidarity campaigns across the world demanding her release from Israeli prison, and an end to Israeli detention of Palestinian children.

Israeli Knesset member, Shuli Mualem, along with dozens of Israeli settlers stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound for the Jewish holiday of Sukkot as reported on Ma’an News Agency. 

Firas al-Dibs, head of the Public Relations and Media Department at the Islamic Endowment, said that dozens of Israeli settlers stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in successive groups and among them was MK Shuli Mualem, for the Jewish Home political party.

Al-Dibs added that Mualem along with the Israeli settlers stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque through the Moroccan Gate, under heavy protection by the Israeli forces, who were also deployed across the compound since early morning.

Many of the Israeli settlers performed religious Jewish prayers while in the compound. Al-Dibs mentioned that Israeli forces and police set up iron barriers at the entrances of the compound and confiscated ID’s of Muslim worshippers before allowing them entry.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which sits just above the Western Wall plaza, houses both the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque. While Jewish visitation is permitted to the compound, non-Muslim worship at Al-Aqsa is prohibited according to an agreement signed between Israel and the Jordanian government after Israel’s illegal occupation of East Jerusalem in 1967.
