Occupied Palestine (In Palestine Today)- Israeli occupation authorities on Sunday have released the Palestinian political prisoner Khalida Jarrar from its jails after serving two years.
Khalida Jarrar, who is a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was detained in March 2021 and was sentenced to two years in Israeli jails.
Khalida Jarrar has been imprisoned several times since 2015 by the Israeli occupation and spent numerous terms under administrative detention.
Jarrar was first arrested in 1989 and held for a month without trial.
For her second detention in 2014, she was sentenced to 15 months in prison.
She was arrested for a third time in 2017.
She was released from Israeli jails in February 2019 after spending 20 months in prison, but the Israeli occupation detained her again in October 2019 from her home in Ramallah city, and she was accused of taking a position in the PFLP.
Jarrar was elected as a member of the Legislative Council in the last Parliamentary elections held in 2006.
Last July, the occupation authorities refused to release Jarrar to be able to attend the funeral of her daughter, Suha. She was denied the right to bury her daughter whose body was found near Palestine medical complex in Ramallah as she died of a sudden heart attack.
“It was very hard and painful to know that my darling Suha passed away, I have missed her too much. Please tell all my beloved ones to take care, I am strong,” Jarrar told her lawyer after being informed about her daughter’s death.
Jarrar is not the only mother or female held in Israeli jails, as there are now 10 mothers out of 39 female prisoners held in the Jails. They are not only suffering the hardships of the prisons but are also suffering from their inability to be with their children or families.
