[ 24/02/2011 - 11:41 AM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Ahrar center for prisoners' studies and human rights said that an Israeli court extended the solitary confinement of Palestinian prisoner Abbas Assayed for six additional months.
Director of the center Fouad Al-Khafsh stated on Wednesday that Assayed has been locked up in isolation cell for six consecutive months and has been in jail since 2003 after he received 47 life sentences.
Khafsh stressed Israel violates international law that criminalizes the imprisonment of prisoners in solitary rooms.
He appealed to international human rights organizations to necessarily intervene to end the suffering of about 10 Palestinian prisoners isolated in Israeli jails.
In a separate incident, the Israeli occupation forces at dawn Thursday kidnapped 13 Palestinian citizens during violent raids on homes in different West Bank towns and villages.
