Israeli court sentences Palestinian to 22 months in prison

TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- An Israeli military court sentenced Ahmad Fadel Muhammad al-Sabah on Sunday to a 22-month prison sentence, the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs said.

A lawyer for the committee said that the court ruled that the time already served by the 29-year-old prisoner since he was first detained in July 2015 would count towards his sentence, meaning that he is set to be released in April.

Al-Sabah, a resident of the village of Qaffin in the northern occupied West Bank district of Tulkarem, is a student at al-Quds Open University.

He was first imprisoned by Israel for a year between 2005 and 2006, and detained once again in 2009, when he spent nine months in Israeli custody for his affiliation to the Islamic Jihad movement.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, some 7,000 Palestinians were imprisoned by Israel as of October. The group estimates that 40 percent of Palestinian men will have been detained by Israel at least once in their lifetime.
