Israel to release detainee suffering from cancer

HEBRON (Ma’an) -- The Israeli military prosecutor at Ofer detention center has endorsed an appeal to release a Palestinian prisoner in administrative detention since Jan. 17, because he has cancer.

Lawyer Tariq Barghouth, who works for the Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Prisoners Affairs, said Wednesday that the prosecutor agreed to release 58-year-old Yasser Rajoub from Hebron in the southern West Bank after his condition worsened.

The lawyer has submitted an urgent appeal to release Rajoub and attached a medical report with the appeal. The family, he said, wants to send Rajoub for treatment abroad once he is released.
