Two Palestinian prisoners enter 17th year of Israeli imprisonment

April 23, 2019 1:00 P.M. (Updated: April 30, 2019 12:52 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian prisoners entered their 17th year inside Israeli prisons, on Tuesday.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said that prisoner Izzat Amin Turkman from the Bir al-Basha village in the northern occupied West Bank district of Jenin entered his 17th year in Israeli prisons, pointing out that the Israeli Prisons Services (IPS) have banned Turkman from receiving family visits for years as an arbitrary punishment.

Turkman was sentenced to a lifetime of prison.

PPS added that prisoner Khalid Khudeish from the Balata refugee camp in the northern West Bank city of Nablus also entered his 17th year in Israeli prisons out of his two lifetime and 50 years of prison sentences.
