Palestinian political leader, leftist and feminist, Khalida Jarrar's
November 3, 2019
On Sunday, 3 November, the Israeli military court at Ofer prison
extended the detention of Palestinian political leader, leftist and
feminist Khalida Jarrar
for eight more days. As reported by Jarrar’s daughter Yafa on social
media, the military prosecution relied on secret evidence to keep Jarrar
Jarrar was seized in the pre-dawn hours of Thursday, 31 October by over
70 armed soldiers and 12 military vehicles invading her Ramallah home.
Her arrest came only eight months after she was released from 20 months
of Israeli administrative detention: imprisonment without charge or
trial, once again on the basis of secret evidence. Detention orders are
issued for up to six months at a time, and they can be indefinitely
extended. As a result, Palestinians regularly spend years at a time in
Israeli prison without charge or trial.
There are currently approximately 450 people held under administrative
detention without charge or trial, out of approximately 5,000 total
Palestinian political prisoners. Several administrative detainees are
conducting a long-term hunger strike, including 24-year-old youth
activist Heba al-Labadi, a Palestinian with Jordanian citizenship seized
by occupation forces when she entered Palestine with her mother to
attend a wedding in Nablus.
We urge people around the world to participate in the Days of Action for
Palestinian Political Prisoners between 8-11 November 2019
We are focusing on the cases of Khalida Jarrar, Heba al-Labadi and
tortured husband and father Samer Arbeed, shackled, tear-gassed and
under interrogation in Hadassah prison after Israeli occupation forces
beat him into unconsciousness and broke 11 of his ribs.
As Yafa Jarrar noted, “International pressure has made the difference in
how quickly mom gets released in the past.” All 5,000 Palestinian
political prisoners need your support in their struggle for justice and
