On Sunday 22 February activists from SFP visited the family of the prisoner Ayman Gharib from Tamon. Ayman was arrested by Apartheid Israel 3 months ago. Since then he has been held in solitary confinement in Jalame interrogation facility for a month, notorious for the torture of Palestinians at the hands of their Israeli jailers. He has now been transferred to Meggido prison.
SFP spoke to Ayman’s mother and wife and brought gifts for his small children. Ayman’s mother relived her pain to the activists after visiting Ayman a week ago and only being able to see him through the glass divider, while he remained shackled. She explained his harsh treatment at the notorious Jalame facility and his ill health as a result. She spoke of her hope that he would be home with his family soon.
SFP will continue to show support for prisoners and their families. We ask people around the world to join our struggle and raise the issue of Palestinian Prisoners with your respective representatives and organise actions in support around the world.
