Palestinian Prisoners Society Jerusalem director arrested by Israeli occupation forces

In the latest attack on Palestinian human rights defenders, Israeli occupation forces arrested Nasser Qaws, director of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society in Jerusalem, on Sunday, 5 June.

Palestinian lawyer Mufid al-Haj said that Qaws was being interrogated about allegations of “incitement,” in thePalestine Information Center. Qaws has been targeted for arrest and detention on multiple occasions by occupation forces over the years.

Palestinian human rights defenders – including those who work on the cases of Palestinian prisoners – have been repeatedly targeted for arrest, persecution, and imprisonment. In addition to Qaws, prominent recent examples include Palestinian journalists’ syndicate leader Omar Nazzal;  Palestinian journalist and human rights defender Hasan Safadi; Addameer vice-chair and Palestinian Legislative Council member Khalida Jarrar; imprisoned land defender and advocate Samer Arbeed, held without charge or trial; civil society leader Eteraf Rimawi, executive director of Bisan; and repeatedly targeted prisoners’ advocates like Ayman Nasser of Addameer and Osama Shaheen of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Center for Studies.

The charge of “incitement” is frequently being used to target activists and community leaders, among students, academics and others; over 150 Palestinians have been arrested over social media postings termed “incitement” on Facebook; among others, prominent Palestinian astrophysicist Imad Barghouthi is now being charged with “incitement” on social media after a successful campaign to end his administrative detention without charge or trial.

Video of the Week Israel votes to cut off power to Gaza.

Video: Allegations have come forth that Mahmoud Abbas (self proclaimed Palestinian "president") will - on top of asking israel to cut Gaza's power to one hour per day (just approved)now declare Gaza a rebel zone! This (if true) will mean the cutting of all aid to Gaza, the shut down of all bank accounts, stopping of all entry/exit and the international arrest warrants of Hamas officials... Calls for war have already been shouted from the rooftops with cuts to Gaza salaries by the PA, restrictions on diesel fuel (due to the PA refusing to pay), the electricity being cut down again and again (causing various problems for life in Gaza) but now it seems like the final nails are being ever so violently hammered into the coffin. If this rumour is true then conflict with Hamas is inevitable and "israel" will have the perfect excuse to massacre innocents in Gaza due to having a legal means to arrest Hamas members (who will not just hand themselves in obviously). Mahmoud Abbas is ready and willing to collectively punish the entire population of 2 million (mostly children) in the Gaza Strip in order to gain more power and to please his own oppressors. If the aid is stopped, the 80+ percent of Gazans reliant on international food aid will starve, 97% of the water in Gaza is also undrinkable, so with none coming in what's the alternative? The current conditions in Gaza would make any sane person cry and feel sick to the pit of their stomach and the so called president of Palestine is dancing around in his expensive suits licking the feet of his people's oppressors!!! Mahmoud Abbas has to go! This is disgusting! #SAVEGAZA
