Comrade Wafa Abu Ghoulmeh reported on March 9, 2011 that her husband, imprisoned Comrade Ahed Abu Ghoulmeh has been subjected to a renewal of his solitary confinement in Ramle prison by the Zionist prison administration. His term in isolation had been set to expire on March 2, 2011. 

In a statement to the Information Office of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Comrade Wafa Abu Ghoulmeh said that this action by the prison administration will not shake her husband's steadfastness and that all forms of terror or pressure exerted against him will find no success.

She said that her husband joined with the call of the imprisoned leader, General Secretary of the PFLP, Comrade Ahmad Sa'adat, supporting the youth and activists of the Palestinian national movement and calling upon our people to participate in all activities and mass movements to end the division and confront the occupation, saying that all prisoners in the occupation's jails are in unity with these actions and demonstrations. 

Comrade Ahed Abu Ghoulmeh has been isolated since January 14, 2010 and repeatedly denied family visits. Abu Ghoulmeh, who was accused by the occupation of being the leader of the Abu Ali Mustafa, the armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, in the West Bank, was abducted along with Comrade Ahmad Sa'adat, the General Secretary of the PFLP, from the Palestinian Authority's Jericho prison on March 14, 2006, where they had been held under US and British guard. His sister, Comrade Linan Abu Ghoulmeh, is also held in occupation jails and another sister, Comrade Taghreed Abu Ghoulmeh, was recently released after six months in administrative detention.
