62 Palestinian women prisoners in Israeli jails; military court orders Lara Tarayreh’s release

There are currently 62 Palestinian women jailed in Israeli prisons, including 13 minor girls, according to the latest statistics released by Palestinian prisoner support organizations as of 2 August.

Another Palestinian young woman, Walaa Ayman al-Mahariq, 18, was arrested by Israeli occupation soldiers near the illegal settlement of Gush Etzion on Monday, 1 August outside Bethlehem as she walked down the street. Al-Mahariq, a resident of al-Samu village, was taken to Ofer military base and prison for interrogation, accused of possession of a knife.

The military court hearing of Noor Darwish, one of a number of young Palestinian female students in Israeli prisons, was continued until 9 August. Darwish, along with fellow studens Hala Bitar and Salam Abu Sharar, was arrested on 19 April amid student elections at their university, Al-Quds University in Abu Dis. Bitar was recently sentenced to four months’ imprisonment for participating in a book fair organized by the Islamic Bloc on campus.

Meanwhile, Lara Nasser al-Tarayreh, 21, was ordered released by the Ofer military court after one month of detention. Al-Tarayreh, from Bani Naim near al-Khalil, was arrested on 3 July in her home along with her brother. Both were accused of “incitement” for speaking to the media about their brother Mohammed’s participation in an armed attack on an Israeli settlement in which he was killed on 30 June. While the military court ordered Tarayreh’s release, the decision was postponed for 48 hours to provide the military prosecution with the opportunity to respond and seek her continued imprisonment. In many similar cases, including those of Palestinian Legislative Council member Khalida Jarrar and professor Imad Barghouthi, such orders of release have led only to continued imprisonment.

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
