Israel stops ex-prisoner from traveling to Jordan

May 18, 2012 7:37 P.M. (Updated: May 19, 2012 8:12 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces prevented an ex-detainee from traveling to Jordan on Friday to visit his wife, a PA official said.

Deputy Prisoners Minister Ziad Abu Ain said that Israeli forces had prevented Nizar al-Tamimi from crossing the Allenby bridge.

The ex-prisoner, who was released as part of the prisoner swap between Hamas and Israel last year, was en route to see his wife, Ahlam al-Tamimi.

Al-Tamimi was given a permit which allowed him to leave the occupied West Bank as part of the prisoner swap, his wife told Ma'an.

The former prisoners married in 2007, while they were both in Israeli jails. Ahlam was sentenced to 16 life sentences and Nizar to one life sentence.

They were both released as part of the prisoner swap last year, with Ahlam exiled to Jordan.

Over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners were freed in October 2011 in exchange for captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
