Since 1967 more than 12,000 Palestinian women have been imprisoned by Israel. Most recently on 15th August three Palestinian women activists from Nablus, all former prisoners – Leena Jawabreh, Linan Abu Ghoulmeh and Myassar Atyani were seized whilst visiting a friend in ’48 Palestine. Leena was sentenced to one month imprisonment and 1000 shekel fine for traveling in her own land without an Israeli permit. Linan and Myassar’s hearing is on Sunday.
We will also be expanding our campaign against G4S to include its complicity in the abuse of Palestinian women prisoners. Currently there are 13 Palestinian women detainees in Israeli prisons, all of them are in a G4S secured prison. In particular we will focus on three Palestinian women activists were were seized just a week ago – the Nablus 3, and campaign for their immediate and unconditional release.
This is part of our regular protests outside G4S HQ for its complicity in the torture of Palestinian children including Mohammad Mahdi Saleh Suleiman and the other ‘Hares Boys’. Mohammad was tortured at Israel’s Megiddo and Al Jalame prisons – both secured by G4S.
