Israel to release Palestinian lawmaker from jail

Feb. 4, 2014 12:00 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 5, 2014 8:56 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israeli authorities were set to release Monday evening a Palestinian lawmaker from Hebron after a year in custody without trial, a human rights group said.

The Ahrar center for prisoners’ studies and human rights quoted family members of Ismail al-Tal as saying that he would be released Monday at Beitunia checkpoint near Ramallah.

Al-Tal, 46, has been in administrative detention since Feb. 4, 2013 without trial.

The Ahrar center highlighted that al-Tal had been detained and released several times and served about nine years in jail, most of which was in administrative detention.

After al-Tal was released, 10 Palestinian lawmakers and one minister remain in Israeli jails.
