61 Palestinian women held in Israeli jails

BEIRUT, (PIC)– The International Campaign in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails (Tadamun) disclosed that there are 61 Palestinian female captives in Israeli prisons. The campaign elaborated that 10 detainees out of 61 are sick, 9 are injured, and 17 are sentenced to various periods. In a statement on Tuesday, the campaign said that the oldest-serving detainee is Lina al-Jarboni who has been arrested 13 years ago and the youngest captive is Dima al-Wawi who is only 12 years old. The statement underlined that the Israeli occupation, by arresting Palestinian women, is violating the SEDAW Convention (1979) which is anti-discrimination against women.
