Two Palestinian women freed from Israeli prison, narrate horrific experiences

Manal Tamimi, and Mona Qa’adan two prominent Palestinian women activists were freed late last week. Tamimi and her family in Nabi Saleh village are internationally known for their popular, grassroots struggle and protests against the confiscation of their agricultural land by an illegal Israeli settlement.

Mona Qa’adan who was even prohibited from family visits for over three years in prison on the grounds of “security” spoke after her release calling attention to imprisoned Palestinian women and especially minor girls, the youngest of whom is only 12 years old, and injured prisoners.
She noted that wounded prisoners need a public campaign in their defense, as their health and lives are at risk on a constant basis due to the poor conditions inside the prison. She also urged intensified efforts for the release of Lena Jerbouni, the longest-serving woman prisoner in Israeli jails.
