'Israel' releases two Palestinian prisonners
"Tel Aviv" released two Palestinian prisoners after they spent 20 years in the Israeli occupation's prisons.
The Israeli occupation released Thursday two Palestinian prisoners, Raafat and Nazem Al-Asous, after the pair spent over two decades in Israeli prisons.
The two cousins from Burin, Nablus, have spent the past 20 years in the occupation's prison. They had been detained in the desert prison in Al-Naqab.
The Prisoners Information Office explained that the two prisoners were released after they each spent about 20 years in prison, with Raafat turning 41 and Nazem turning 44 while in prison.

The Israeli occupation imprisoned Raafat during the 2000 Al-Aqsa Intifada, also known as the Second Intifada. As he was serving his sentence, he wrote a book entitled "a journey through the mazes of captivity", an autobiography touching on his experiences while in prison.
During the two decades he spent in prison, Nazem lost his mother, father, and wounded brother, Maher.
