Israeli wardens harass daughters of Palestinian prisoner during visit

TUBAS (Ma'an) – Israeli prison wardens on Monday evening assaulted two daughters of a Palestinian prisoner during regular visit to their father in Israel's Rimon prison, the Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies reported.

A spokeswoman of the center, Aminah al-Taweel, said in a statement that two daughters of prisoner Yahya Sharida from Tubas in the northern West Bank were "harassed because they were wearing Niqab (face cover)" during a visit to their father.

She said that a captain in the prison service police asked the daughters Ayat and Sundus Sharida after they visited their father to take off their face cover to make sure the photos on their ID cards were theirs. However, the two refused to take off the covers except before female officers. As a result, the girls were detained for two hours.

The girls were released after two hours, and "were threatened to be deprived of visits to their father for the remaining 11 years of his imprisonment."

The father has been in Israeli custody since Nov. 14, 2003 serving 22 years on a charge of membership in the Hamas military wing.
