Female doctor spends her 2nd Ramadan in Israeli isolated cell
AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Alarms have been sounded over the 27-year-old Palestinian doctor Sabreen Waleed Abu Sharar, who is spending the holy month of Ramadan in an isolated cell in Israeli jails for the second year. The Israeli occupation courts have extended her remand for the 10th time running pending her trial on July 15. Sabreen has reportedly spent the two first days of Ramadan in an isolated cell in the Israeli Ashkelon jail, where she has been subjected to harsh psycho-physical torture. Isolated in time and space, Sabreen cannot hear the call for prayers to break her fast. “Sabreen cannot differentiate between the day and the night due to the dim darkness she has been made to endure in the isolated cell. She has been praying Allah with tears in her eyes and pain in her heart to be released at the soonest time possible,” her family said, adding that they have been prevented from visiting Sabreen since June 7, 2015. According to the Prisoners’ Media Center, Sabreen was subjected to exhaustive interrogation at her home in Dura the day of the arrest. “Echoes of the soldiers’ voices while threatening Sabreen with arrest and torture were heard overnight before she was transferred to an unknown destination without prior notification,” the center added. “Since her arrest, Sabreen attended trial hearings. The occupation authorities have renewed her detention with every hearing on claims of incomplete judicial procedures,” said her father. Sabreen returned to the occupied Palestinian territories after she had spent six years in Egypt, where she pursued her studies in medicine. She joined the Alya public hospital in al-Khalil as an intern. She was arrested five months later.
