Qalandia – Issawiya – Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Two Palestinian Jerusalemites were released from Israeli jails this week after serving lengthy prison sentences. Abed al-Halim Awad from Qalandia in the north of Jerusalem, served a 4 year sentence before finally walking free; and Muhammad Froukh from Issawiya was released after 1 and a half years.

Issawiya village is frequently a flashpoint for tension and violence between Israeli forces and Palestinian protesters, with Israeli troops frequently isolating the district during clashes. On 24 September 2010 a Palestinian child died as a result of aspyxiation from tear gas inhalation during clashes in Issawiya village.
