Military court extends solitary confinement of PFLP leader

Oct. 24, 2010 10:46 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 29, 2010 1:01 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli military court on Sunday extended the solitary confinement of Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine secretary-general Ahmad Sa'adat until 21 April 2011, PFLP said.

Sa'adat has already been held in solitary confinement in Ramon prison in Israel for 18 months, PFLP officials said, adding that the latest court decision also renewed a ban on visits for a further three months.

The officials described the ruling as unfair, illegitimate and arbitrary, and said it affirmed Israel's policy of punishing leaders of the national movement in Israeli jails. The PFLP would continue their solidarity campaign and confront the decision inside Palestinian territories and internationally, officials said.

Sa'adat has been imprisoned since 2002, and was sentenced in 2008 to a 30-year sentence.
