GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Palestinian prisoner Muhammad Adel Hasan Dawood, 47, on Saturday completes his 25th year in Israeli jails bringing the number of Palestinian prisoners who served more than a quarter decade to 22.
According to the director of Gaza-based Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies Riyad al-Ashqar, Dawood, from Qalqiliya in the northern West Bank, was detained Nov. 8, 1987, and sentenced to life.
An Israeli military court convicted Dawood of carrying out an attack against settlers at the bypass road south of Qalqiliya killing a number of settlers. Israeli forces then demolished his home.
