Group: Israel confines released prisoners to Palestine for 10 years

Oct. 30, 2013 8:02 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 30, 2013 10:37 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- The human rights organization Tadamon said Wednesday that Israel bans freed prisoners from leaving the occupied Palestinian Territories for 10 years after their release.

Moa'ayad Salim Hija, a released prisoner from the Nablus district, is quoted in the statement as saying that released prisoners are not allowed to leave Palestine for 10 years and are confined to their home districts for a year.

The statement also quoted Ahmad Sa'ed Abdul Aziz, a freed prisoner from Jenin, as saying that Israeli authorities require prisoners to pledge not to be involved in political or military activity after they are released.

Freed prisoners are also required to visit their nearest liaison office every month for a year to sign various documents, the statement said.

Twenty-six Palestinian prisoners were released from Israeli jails Tuesday night as the second part of a four-stage deal to coincide with the PLO's return to peace negotiations in July.

Peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians were relaunched in July under the auspices of the United States after nearly three years of impasse.
