Shalabi To Be Deported To Gaza Sunday

author Sunday April 01, 2012 12:47author by Saed Bannoura - IMEMC Report post

     The Ad-Dameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association 
reported that female detainee, Hana' Ash-Shalabi, is being deported 
to the Gaza Strip, and that the Red Cross is bringing her family to 
the Erez terminal to see her shortly before she is sent to Gaza.

Once sent to the besieged coastal region, Ash-Shalabi will not be 
able to see her family, similar to all West Bank detainees who were 
released from Israeli prisons under the condition that they be sent 
to Gaza or exiled out of Palestine.

The Israeli act comes in direct violation to International Law, the 
Fourth Geneva Convention, and all related Human Rights principles and 

On March 30, AMNESTY International made a statement demanding that 
Ash-Shalabi should be released and allowed to head back home in the West Bank.

"Instead of deporting her to the Gaza Strip, where access to 
specialized medical care is limited, due to the Israeli blockade and 
the ongoing fuel crisis which threatens hospitals, she should be 
released along with other Palestinians held in administrative 
detention, or promptly charged with a recognizable criminal 
offence.", AMNESTY said.

Immediately after being kidnaped by the Israeli army in the West 
Bank, Ash-Shalabi, 30, Shalabi, 30, conducted a 43-day hunger-strike 
demanding an end to her illegal detention.

Physicians or Human Rights said that she suffered from impaired 
thyroid functions, weakness and dizziness, according to Physicians 
for Human Rights Israel, and that she requires specialized medical attention.
