The torment of an isolated captive’s family continue 21 years on

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- Palestinian captive Rizk Abdallah Muslim Rajoub from Dura south of Al-Khalil spent 11th month in the solitary confinement in "Ohali Kidar" prison. Rajoub spent  twenty-one years in occupation jails on aggregate so far.
Rajoub's wife says that the occupation did not stop arresting her husband repeatedly since 1980 (two years after their marriage) that marked the beginning of the family's suffering and deprivation.
She explains to "Quds Press" reporter that her husband (55 years) is now suffering from serious health problems such as anemia as a result of repeated detentions and that on his last arrest in 25th November 2009, he was sentenced to three years and a half from which he spent 11 months in solitary confinement deprived of his family's visits.
The family's torment was augmented by occupation's arrest of their eldest son Ahmad at the age of eighteen years, in addition to administrative detention for most of Rajoub's extended family members whose only guilt was knowing "Abu Ahmed". Yet, the wife stressed on the family’s steadfastness and readiness to confront the occupation until their last breath.
