The Israeli military court imposed house arrest on Hajja Fethiye Khanfar, 58, at a house in Rahat city in 1948-occupied territories, said Yousef Khanfar, the prisoner’s husband.

He added that the occupation authorities released her on 18 February, on bail of 30 thousand shekels, and imposed on her house arrest in the village of Rahat within 1948-occupied territories until the court session on 14 April.

Concerning her health condition, the husband confirmed that Hajja Fethiye suffers low blood pressure, bowel problems and being overweight, and that she has already undergone several surgeries.

The occupation forces accused her of smuggling mobile phones to her son who is serving a 15-year sentence in Israeli jails.

He added that the court’s decision forced her to live with a guarantor from 1948-occupied territories and to sign twice a week, Sundays and Wednesdays, at the nearest Israeli police station despite her difficult health condition.
