Youngest Palestinian prisoner finally free.

Dima Al-wawi, 12, is finally free from the Israeli prison this Sunday morning. Dima was one of the youngest girls in the world to be
imprisoned.

She was received by the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoners, Issa Qaraque, and her family at the Israeli military checkpoint in Tulkarem, in the occupied West Bank.

On February 18, the Israeli military court at Ofer prison sentenced the 12-year-old Palestinian girl to four months and a half in prison and an eight-thousand-shekel.

Al-Wawi, a 7th grader from the occupied West Bank town of Halhoul, near Hebron, was arrested on February 9 while on her way to school wearing her school uniform.
Since her arrest, Dima’s family were living under extremely difficult psychological circumstances.

They received a letter from her, though the hands of her lawyer.
Subhia al-Wawi, Dima’s mother, in an interview with a PNN reporter stated that her daughter sent her and her family a the letter through their lawyer, since they are not allowed to see the child.

With tears in her eyes, al-Wawi read the letter: “My beloved mom, dad, and dear brothers:  I miss you all so much and I know that you are with me.  I am good, healthy, fine and happy. With love, Dima.”

Al-Wawi said that as any other child, her daughter has the right to play and to eat properly, referring to Dima’s arrest and captivity in an Israeli jail, violating Dima’s children rights.

She added that Dima’s lawyer tried to appeal and to prove that the accusations against her daughter are false, but all in vain.

Hamas and Fatah have been longtime rivals, but earlier this week formed a unity government, signaling an end to a seven-year split during clashes with Israeli soldiers after a protest in support of Palestinian prisoners hunger striking since 42 days in Israeli jails.

Some 120 Palestinians jailed without trial in Israel have been on an open-ended hunger strike, eating only salt and drinking water, for the past 23 days to demand an end to so-called “administrative detention”.

Khaled al Sheikh, the youngest Palestinian prisoner in the world, is FREED TODAY, FINALLY, after spending 100 days in Occupation prisons.

14 year old teen Khaled Al-Sheikh from Beit ‘Anan village West Jerusalem was kidnapped by Israeli forces and detained for 100 days now, under the pretext of throwing stones on Israeli soldiers.
Khaled’s father, Hussam Al-Sheikh told PNN that Israeli forces have kidnapped his son on the 25th of December, where he was taken to the Benyamin police center for investigation.
Hussam met his son the same day at midnight. He said that signs of beating were apparent on his face. He added that Khaled was moved to the Ofer prison in Ramallah where he appeared before three courts. The last court accused him of throwing stones and burning ties, and every court extends his detention period and rejects financial bail.
Khaled’s father added that his son was going through hard times in addition to the brutal beating he takes. “The first time I saw him in court, his hands and legs were cuffed. He was prevented from talking to us,” Al-Sheikh told PNN.
He added that his son had Anemia, and his last test showed blood HGB level of 8, and that this was his biggest concern.
“I don’t know whether he [Khaled] is taking his drugs or not, since he had a special diet and medicines”
He voiced that when he told the court judge his son’s condition, he considered Khaled “a security threat to Israel.”
Khaled’s father was shocked of the court decision, since that a man in his fifties can imprison and judge children.
“The normal place for children is their school or playground and not prison,” he concluded.
