HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israel released Sunday evening a prisoner from Hebron after nine years in jail, the prisoners’ center said.
Ahrar Center for Prisoner studies director Fouad al-Khafsh said that Mahmoud Sharabati, 31, was released after being subjected to "oppression" in jail.
Sharabati was arrested in 2004 and was cruelly interrogated before being sentenced to nine years, he said.
Sharabati said after his release that prisoners wish that Palestinians worked hard to support them and eventually release them. He called on Palestinians to end the division and unite.
He added that Israeli prison administration have escalated its "ferocity" in dealing with prisoners and have enforced intensive punishment on them ranging from banning family visits to moving them between jails.
