After long years in Israeli jails, Mahmoud Jabbarin obtains freedom

Mahmoud Jabbarin 55

Palestinian prisoner Mahmoud Jabbarin, 55, was released on Sunday morning after spending 30 years in Israeli jails.

According to the Palestinian news website Arab 48, some of Jabbarin’s relatives and friends rallied on Saturday outside the Negev prison where he was being held and spent their night there, but the jailers transferred him suddenly to an unknown place.

Jabbarin, who was considered one of the most prominent doyens of the Palestinian detainees in Israeli jails, had been arrested on October 8, 1988 and then sentenced to 30 years in jail on charges of his ties with resistance groups and carrying out military operations against Israeli targets.

The prisoner was barred from bidding farewell to his mother who passed away last November 2017 or even phoning her during her illness.
