Mother appeals to Abbas to release son

June 25, 2012 5:14 P.M. (Updated: June 26, 2012 1:40 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A woman on Monday appealed to President Mahmoud Abbas to release her son so he can attend his father's funeral.

Halmi Jermi, from Balata refugee camp in Nablus, told Ma'an she would not bury her husband without her son.

Two of Halmi's sons were detained by the Palestinian Authority. The PA released Nidal Jermi for three days to attend the funeral but has refused to allow Salah permission to attend, she said.

Palestinian Authority security forces detained Salah Jermi 37 days ago, his brother Kamal told Ma'an. He is held in al-Dhahiriya jail in Hebron.

Salah Jermi spent 10 years in Israeli prisons and was released in an October prisoner swap agreement between Israel and Hamas.

His father died on Sunday.
