Palestinians renew calls to release sick prisoner in Israeli Jails

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Palestinians have renewed callings to save and release Palestinian prisoner Iyad Haribat who is held in Israeli jails and his health has been deteriorating.

Palestinians have launched an online campaign on social media, calling to tweet on the hashtag #SaveEyad in Arabic and English, to send Iyad voice and suffering to the whole world.

39-year-old Haribat was arrested in 2002 and he is serving a life sentence in Israeli prisons.

Haribat was transferred between Israeli prisons and subjected to solitary confinement for six months.

Haribat has spent 19 years in Israeli prisons so far for unknown reasons and he was subjected to two assassination attempts.

The first was in 2014, after he was injured by the Israeli occupation forces while suppressing the prisoners in Ramon prison, and he was transferred to the prison clinic.

In the clinic, he was given an injection in the head causing him to lose his memory and the ability to move his limbs.

The second time was in 2017, after he was transferred to Soroka hospital.

The Israeli occupation forces sprayed him that time with a toxic gas that led him to have burns all over his body, and he lost 40 kilograms of his weight and became fully paralyzed.

Iyad had stayed in a psychiatric hospital for four months, and Israel’s treatment for him worsened his condition, his family has said.

Iyad Haribat is known to be fluent in three languages and holds two university degrees in political science and agricultural engineering and he helped his fellow inmates to learn writing and reading.

For the past few days of July, 2021, Iyad’s health has been deteriorating to the lowest level as he was given strange injections that led to paralysis and amnesia.

One month ago, he had urinary retention. He did not receive proper health treatment in Israeli jails, and now, he has gangrene and the negligence of his health led him to go into a coma.

He still undergoes daily surgeries to control the bacterial spread in his body, but he now has blood poisoning and bacterial lung infection.

In a meeting with Haribat’s mother, she said that she went to visit her son accompanied by his brother.

Haribat’s mother said that Iyad thought his brother was a member of the Israeli intelligence who came to interrogate him, adding that Iyad asked her to swear to him that she is his mother.

“I want my son to come home alive, not dead,” Haribat’s mother said.

Haribat’s mother also said that on one of her visits to her son, she did not recognize Iyad, she screamed from the severity of his appearance.

She said that his fellow inmates advised her not to cry in front of her son, Iyad, because he suffers from convulsive seizures and difficult health conditions.

Iyad’s family are not allowed to visit their son who is chained in the ICU.

Therefore, Iyad’s family have called on to save and immediately release their son from Israeli prisons.

Over 80 Israeli settlers break into Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Dozens Israeli settlers broke into the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied Jerusalem earlier on Sunday.

Under the occupation forces protection, over 80 Israeli settlers broke into the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque during the morning break-in session.

Local sources also said that the forces have arrested a Palestinian man at the courtyards of the mosque.

Israeli occupation authorities allow settler incursions to the mosque since 2003 under the forces protection, despite repeated objections and warnings by the Palestinian religious authorities as the visits provoke worshippers of the mosque.

Israeli forces always attack and assault Palestinian worhipers at the courtyards of the Mosque with sound grenades, rubber bullets and pepper gas.

The forces also station at the gates of the mosque and detain dozens of Palestinian young men and boys, after assaulting them.

Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site in Islam which located in occupied Jerusalem.

13 Palestinian prisoner in Israeli jails continue hunger strike

GAZA CITY, GAZA – JUNE 17: Palestinians wear prisoners suits take part in a protest in support of Palestinians prisoners detained in Israeli jails and who have been on hunger strike, in Gaza City on June 17, 2014. Some 285 Palestinian prisoners observe a mass hunger strike in protest against their being held without charge under a procedure called administrative detention. Of that number, 125 have been refusing food for more than six weeks, with 65 of them being treated in hospital, according to the Israeli Prisons Service

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- 13 Palestinian prisoners remain in an open hunger strike in protest of their unfair administrative detention in Israeli jails without a charge or trial.

The Palestinian Commission of Detainees’ and ex-Detainees’ Affairs said on Sunday that 13 Palestinians prisoners in Israeli jails continue their hunger strike; the longest hunger-striker is 40-year-old Salem Ziadat who has been on hunger strike for 28 days.

Until yesterday, the number of the prisoners who started a hunger strike was 15 and today, the Commission said, the number of the hunger-striking prisoners became 13.

Around 40 Palestinian detainees started hunger strike since the start of 2021, in protest against Israel’s detention without a charge or trial.

Administrative detention is illegal under international law, however, the occupation state uses it to repress the Palestinian people.

‘Israel’ routinely uses administrative detention and has, over the years, placed thousands of Palestinians behind bars for periods ranging from several months to several years, without charging them, without telling them what they are accused of, and without disclosing the alleged evidence to them or to their lawyers.

Thus, the hunger strike is a method of a non-violent resistance which the prisoners use to protect their lives and their fundamental rights and a response to the occupation racist policies which they face in the prisons.

There are 4,850 Palestinian political prisoners held in Israeli jails, among the prisoners are 540 administrative detainees held without charge or trial, 225 child prisoners and 41 female prisoners.

In June only, 615 Palestinians, including 92 minors and 24 women, were detained by Israeli occupation, while 100 administrative detention orders were issued.

In 2020 only, the Israeli occupation forces arrested 4,634 Palestinians, among them 543 children and 128 women, in addition to issuing 1,114 administrative detention orders.

By the end of March 2021, the number of Palestinian prisoners and detainees reached 4,450, including 37 women, 140 children, and 440 administrative detainees.

By the end of May 2021, the number of Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli jails reached 4,277 Palestinians, including 435 administrative detainees.

Bella Hadid says she will not stop talking about Palestine

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- American supermodel from Dutch-Palestinian descent Bella Hadid has expressed love for her homeland, Palestine, saying she will not stop talking about “the oppression and pain that Palestinians systematically face.”

“A Palestinian girl on the cover of Vogue,” 24-year-old Hadid, who is a native of Los Angeles and a descendant of a Palestinian refugee family displaced in 1948, wrote in a post in her page on Instagram.

She continued, “I am happy to say: I will not stop talking about the oppression and pain that Palestinians systematically face.”

“With only love in my heart and an open mind to educate myself and learn more every day . No matter what, I love you (Palestine).”

Bella and her sister Gigi Hadid have been advocating for the rights of Palestinians against Israel’s oppression and aggression.

Bella is slammed everytime she expresses support and solidarity to the Palestinians, the latest was in May when she was among the thousands of demonstrators who gathered in New York City in a pro-Palestinian march in solidarity with Palestine when Gaza Strip was under Israeli attacks.

Also, Bella and Gigi along with British pop star Dua Lipa was attacked that month for their support of Palestine and accused of of anti-Semitism.

In a full-page advertisement in The New York Times, the three was accused falsely of forming an “unholy trinity of anti-Semitic bile to demonize the Jewish people, whom they insist have no right to defend themselves.”

The ad refers to Lipa and models Bella and Gigi Hadid as “mega-influencers” who have “vilified the Jewish state” and “accused Israel of ethnic cleansing.”

The advertisement includes a photo of all three women modeling red-carpet looks, with the headline: “Meet the new Hamas influencer brigades.”

Many celebrities had voiced support for Palestine that time, including Mark Ruffalo, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, The Weeknd, Zayn Malik and Roger Waters.

This support came after 11 days of Israeli deadly aggression on the Gaza Strip, as 248 Palestinians were killed in the aggression, including 66 children and 39 women, and at least 1,910 others were injured.

More than 90,000 Palestinians were displaced from their homes, and much of Gaza’s infrastructure and many residential buildings were completely destroyed or levelled.

Weeks before the aggression, as the tensions increased, Israeli settlers and forces were attacking Jerusalemities in the Al Aqsa mosque and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem.

Sheikh Jarrah has been cited as one of the most issues that sparked attention and condemnation around the world as dozens of Palestinians are facing imminent eviction from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah, in a move to force them out and replace it entirely with an Israeli settlement.
