RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Al-Ahrar center for prisoners’ studies and human rights appealed to international human rights organizations to necessarily intervene to get professor Mohamed Al-Salibi, 62, released from Israeli jails, noting that he has been in administrative detention since December 13, 2009 without any charge leveled against him.

Director of the center Fouad Al-Khafsh stated that Salibi is a noted Palestinian academic and one of the Sharia college’s pillars at Al-Najah university.

Khafsh added that Salibi, who is considered the oldest in age compared to other prisoners, was kidnapped upon his return from a pilgrimage trip in Saudi Arabia.

He pointed out that Salibi is jailed administratively in Megiddo prison under harsh conditions and his health worsens because of his old age.

In another context, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) stormed the house of MP Mohamed Al-Natsha last night in Al-Hawuz area in Al-Khalil city and handed him a summons from the Israeli intelligence.

Hamas lawmakers in the West Bank strongly denounced what happened to MP Natsha, stressing that such measures are desperate attempts to undermine the steadfastness of Palestinian lawmakers and to thwart their mission in serving the Palestinian people.

For its part, the international campaign for the release of Palestinian lawmakers condemned the Israeli raid on Natsha’s house and asserted that what happened is an obvious attempt to discourage the lawmakers from assuming their parliamentary duties.

It emphasized the need for providing international protection for Palestinian lawmakers who were democratically elected by their people to represent and serve them.
