RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The two Palestinian youths Islam Mossa and Mohamed Assi spent Eid al-Adha away from their families and behind the Israeli bars after being arrested by Israeli forces on the day of Arafat, the day before Eid al-Adha.
The Israeli forces arrested Islam and Mohammed, from Ramallah, after raiding and violently searching their parents’ houses.
It worth mentioning that the two youths’ arrest came three days after being released from PA jails where they spent three months behind PA bars as part of the security coordination policy between Israeli and Palestinian authorities in West Bank.
Islam’s mother stated that her son was jailed during Eid al-Fitr in PA jails and he is also detained in Eid al-Adha in Israeli prisons.
Islam’s arrest deepens his family’s suffering especially that his father Salah Mossa, 48, is detained and sentenced to 17 life terms in Israeli jails for being affiliated with a “dangerous group” in Ramallah.
The two young men were first arrested in PA jails for 15 days to be released by a court’s order, however they were detained again few moments after their release.
The PA Intelligence has extended their arrest twice despite the court’s order to release them. They were then released few days before Eid al-Adha to be re-arrested by Israeli forces.
Islam and Mohamed’s issue has negatively affected on the Palestinian judicial system’s reputation where it proves that the Palestinian Judiciary is directed by PA security services.
