    Israeli released, on Thursday evening, former Palestinian Minister
    of Detainees, Wasfy Qabha, 50, after holding him under
    Administrative Detention for two years without charges or trial.

The army moved him to the Jabara roadblock, east of the northern West 
Bank city of Tulkarem, where was released and was welcomed on the other 
side of the roadblock by hundreds of residents, family members and 
journalists.

Following his release, Qabha was moved to Thabit Thabit Hospital, in 
Tulkarem, for general medical checkup before heading home.

He was mildly inured after the soldiers at the roadblock forced him to 
walk through an unpaved rough bypass road after releasing him at the 
roadblock.

Qabha was kidnapped by the army on June 10 2011, and was placed under 
Administrative Detention order without charges for six months; Israel 
renewed those orders four times.

Qabha was kidnapped and imprisoned by the army nine times, and spent a 
total of 13 years in Israeli prisons. He suffers from diabetes and high 
blood pressure.

His brother, Dr. Amjad Qabha, is currently held at the Beersheba (Be'er 
As-Sabe') prison; he was kidnapped ten years ago and was sentenced to 19 
years imprisonment.
