OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli District Court sentenced the Jerusalemite female prisoner Intissar Sayad to 30 months (two and a half years), on charges of stabbing an Israeli soldier.

Intissar Sayad was arrested on 22/11/2012 after stabbing an Israeli soldier in Salah al-Din Street, lightly wounding him, Wadi al-Hilweh Information Center said, pointing out that the Israeli court refused appeals to release her on bail under the pretext her being a security threat to “Israel”.

The prisoner Sayad is to serve her sentence at Hasharon prison. She is the mother of four children aged between 12 and 18 years old.

Israeli police have released seven young men from the town of Beit Safafa, after paying a fine of 2000 shekels each and were put under house arrest for 3 days, in addition to a pledge not to take part in any more “unauthorized” demonstrations.

The youths were charged with assault of Israeli police and hampering their work.

The police have arrested 10 youths, including a minor who was released on the same day, during a sit-in organized last Friday in Beit Safafa, where they were subjected to severe attack by Israeli police before being taken to al-Maskoubiya detention center.

Meanwhile, Palestinian human rights sources confirmed that the Israeli occupation is still holding 13 Palestinian women in Hasharon prison, including seven who are held without trial.

Lena Jerboni, from the occupied Galilee in northern occupied Palestine, was arrested on April 18, 2002 where she served a sentence of 17 years and is considered the oldest Palestinian female prisoner in Israeli prisons, PPS said in statement on Sunday.

The human rights center explained that 5 female prisoners are from the city of al-Khalil, 2 are from Bethlehem in the southern West Bank, 2 others are from Jenin, one from Nablusin the northern West Bank, and 2 female prisoners are from the occupied city of Jerusalem, and one female captive is from the occupied Galilee.
