Israel deports liberated prisoner Iyad Abu Fanoon from Battir to Gaza

[ PIC 20/06/2013 – 10:36 AM ]


BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority is to deport liberated prisoner Iyad Abu Fanoon, from Battir village in Bethlehem, to Gaza Strip.

Ahlam Haddad, the prisoner’s lawyer, told the PIC reporter that the Israeli military prosecution in Ofer court on Thursday asked Abu Fanoon to choose between deportation to Gaza for ten years or completing his former sentence.

She said that the prosecution made the offer after Abu Fanoon threatened to go on hunger strike.

Haddad said that the court ruling would be implemented one month from today after Abu Fanoon, 35, agreed to be exiled.

Israeli occupation forces arrested Abu Fanoon on 20/4/2012 after releasing him in the prisoners’ exchange deal in late 2011. He had served nine years of his 29-year sentence.
