Occupation court issues prison sentences against 2 Palestinian activists in Jerusalem

Occupied Jerusalem (The Inside Palestine) – Israeli court in occupied Jerusalem on Wednesday issued prison sentences against two Palestinian brothers from the town of Beit Hanina, north of the city.

Jerusalemite activist Amjad Abu Asab said that the Israeli occupation sentenced 24-year-old detainee Mahmoud Jamal Abu Taa’a to 14 months and prison, and sentenced his 26-year-old brother Abdul Kareem to 12 months in prison.

Abu Asab added that the Israeli court has indicted the two youths for carrying out acts of resistance against the occupation state.

The two brothers were detained by Israeli forces in June, 2021, and are now being held at the Ramon prison.

According to Palestinian figures, about 4,850 Palestinians, including 34 women and 160 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.

Among them, close to 540 Palestinians are currently being held under Israel’s illegal policy of administrative detention, under which prisoners can be held for renewable six-month periods without charge or trial.
