JENIN, (PIC)– The Israeli court has extended today the house arrest of the elderly lady Fethiye Khanfar, from Jenin, till next September at a house in Rahat in 1948-occupied Palestine for the 6th time in a row.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) held the Israeli authorities fully responsible for her life especially in light of her difficult health condition.

PPS said that Hajja Fethiye, 58, was detained for 18 days in Israeli jails after visiting her son who is serving a 15-year sentence. She was then released and placed under house arrest in Rahat in 1948-occupied Palestine.

Yousef Khanfar, the prisoner’s husband, confirmed that Hajja Fethiye suffers low blood pressure, bowel problems and being overweight, and that she has already undergone several surgeries.

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 hearing which was delayed to September 9, he added.

He pointed out 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.

Khanfar said that these Israeli measures came in light the Israeli harassments against the Palestinian prisoners’ families.

The husband held the occupation responsible for his wife’s life especially that she needs urgent medical care.
