Trial of The Six Palestinian Prisoners Resumed
The Israeli occupation court will hold a trial session in Al-Nasra occupation's Court for the six prisoners who liberated themselves from Gilboa prison on September 6, and the two residents of Jenin who granted them refuge.
Al Mayadeen correspondent in Palestine reported that the trial of the six Palestinian prisoners who managed to escape from Gilboa prison will resume in al-Nasira occupation’s Court.
Our reporter added that the prisoners are deprived of their right to meet family members, stressing that their lawyers will object to the charges pressed against them.
"The prisoners of the Freedom Tunnel hold hard to their fundamental rights and freedoms,” she reported.
Our reporter further stressed that the 6 prisoners live in extremely poor detention conditions, adding that the prisoners were handcuffed and deprived of water while being transferred from prisons to the Israeli high court.
Despite being Heavily-guarded, prisoner Yaqoub Mahmoud Qadri defied Israeli soldiers and bravely decried: "Our conditions are horrible; we are living in cemeteries, but we are resilient.”
“ Palestine is ours, all of Palestine”, Qadri stated.
In October, the six Palestinian prisoners were charged with escaping by the Israeli occupation's Court; no security-related charges were filed against them.
The penalty for fleeing prison, where prisoners are constantly subjected to abuse, mistreatment, and deprivation of their basic human rights, is an additional seven years.
Furthermore, five other Palestinians were charged for helping the 6 prisoners in their escape, which also carries a sentence of seven years.
