RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A Palestinian human rights organization reported that the Israeli prison administration isolated the Palestinian captive Fathi al-Khatib, aged 53, from the town of Qaffin in Tulkarem in the northern West Bank.

Tadhamun Foundation for Human Rights pointed out in a statement on Wednesday that the Hadarim prison administration moved captive Khatib to solitary confinement, under the pretext of finding a SIM card in his room.

Khatib was arrested on May 8, 2002 and sentenced to 29 times life imprisonment and 20 years, after being convicted of participating in a commando operation targeting the Grand Park Hotel in the Palestinian occupied territories, and in which a number of Israelis were killed.

The statement added that the Shin Bet transferred the Palestinian prisoner Salim Hajja, aged 40 from the village of Burqa in Nablus in the north of the West Bank, to Petah Tikva Center to question him again, and extended the period of his interrogation to 8 days, as he is scheduled to appear before the Court next Sunday.

Hajja is sentenced to 16 times life imprisonment and 30 years. He was arrested on April 2, 2002, on charges of participating in military activities and helping Palestinian resistance fighters in two commando operations against Israeli targets.
