  Twelve Palestinian parliamentarians jailed by Israeli occupation

January 2, 2018

Israeli occupation forces continued their ongoing campaigns of raids and 
arrests targeting the Palestinian civilian population under occupation 
as the new year dawned on 1 January 2018, including the seizure of 
Palestinian Legislative Council member *Nasser Abdel-Jawad*in a pre-dawn 
raid on his home <http://asramedia.ps/post/5697/> in the village of Deir 
Ballut near Salfit. Abdel-Jawad, 50, is now the 12th Palestinian 
parliamentarian jailed by Israeli occupation forces, just days after the 
Israeli military issued a second six-month detention order against 
leftist parliamentarian and Palestinian national leader *Khalida Jarrar* 

Abdel-Jawad returned from abroad two weeks ago after completing his 
Ph.D. in Malaysia, reported Asra Voice radio 
<http://asravoice.ps/post/8726/>. He is a member of the PLC representing 
the Change and Reform Bloc associated with the Hamas movement. He 
previously spent over 16 years in Israeli prisons.

Fellow PLC member *Hassan Yousef 
*was also recently re-arrested on 12 December after being released for 
only three months from his prior imprisonment without charge or trial.

*Ahmed Attoun, Mohammed Jamal al-Natsheh, Mohammed Abu Teir, Mohammed 
Badr, Ibrahim Dahbour, Ahmad Mubarak*, all of the Change and Reform 
Bloc, are held without charge or trial under administrative detention, 
while *Azzam Salhab* 
was sentenced by a military court to one year in Israeli occupation prisons.

*Ahmad Sa’adat,* 
the imprisoned General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation 
of Palestine, and *Marwan Barghouthi* 
the Fateh Central Committee member, are both imprisoned members of the 
PLC; Sa’adat was sentenced to 30 years in prison after he and his 
comrades were seized from a Palestinian Authority prison while 
Barghouthi is serving multiple life sentences. Both are among the most 
prominent Palestinian political leaders imprisoned in Israeli jails.
