  Lawyer Shireen al-‘Eesawy Moved Into Solitary Confinement

    The Palestinian Detainees Committee has reported, Tuesday, that the
    administration in the Ramla Israeli Prison moved lawyer Shireen
    al-‘Eesawy, from the al-‘Eesawiyya town in occupied Jerusalem, into
    solitary confinement. Shireen is the sister of detainee Samer

The committee said the administration placed the imprisoned lawyer with 
Israeli women, held on criminal charges, and moved her to a small 
solitary cell.

It added that the soldiers confiscated all electric equipment and 
belongings of al-‘Eesawy, and placed her in a tiny, dark and humid cell.

Shireen was repeatedly assaulted by her jailors, and by many imprisoned 
Israeli women, while the soldiers kept punishing and subjecting her to 
very harsh conditions.

The Committee stated that the escalating Israeli violations against the 
detainees, especially the ongoing psychological abuse, is a deliberate 
method used in an attempt to break the detainees, and increase their 

The imprisoned lawyer, and four other female detainees, have been facing 
harsh punitive measures in the HaSharon Israeli prison, for the last two 
weeks, after an Israeli prisoner claimed they quarreled with her.

The Prison Administration did not even investigate the claim, and moved 
the five Palestinian political prisoners into solitary confinement.

Shireen is the sister detainee Samer al-‘Eesawy, who was sent to court 
Sunday where the judge reinstated his original 30-year imprisonment term 
for “violating the terms of his release.”

Samer was kidnapped in June of 2014, along with dozens of former 
political prisoners who were released as part of the Shalit Prisoner 
Swap agreement.

He spent ten years of his 30-year term before his was released under the 
Shalit deal, and the new ruling against him reinstated the twenty 
remaining years of his sentence.

The court also reinstated life terms against six detainees, who were 
released under the Shalit agreement, and were rearrested in recent 
months. The detainees are Aladdin al-Bazian, Adnan Maragha, Ismael 
Hijazi, Jamal Abu Saleh, Rajab Tahhan, and Nasser Abedrabbo.

The ruling was appealed, and the court recently decided to study each 
case separately before issuing its final verdict.

On Monday December 23 2013, Samer al-‘Eeesawy was released after being 
held for 17 months; the agreement for his release came after his 
historic 277-day hunger strike.

In June 0f 2014, Israel recaptured at least 50 ex-detainees that were 
released in the 2011 prisoners exchange agreement, al-‘Eesawy was among 
the kidnapped. Most of them remain held either under administrative 
detention - without indictment or trial - or are still awaiting military 
court ruling.
