Israel to release mother of al-Barghouthi brothers

March 4, 2019 3:46 P.M. (Updated: March 7, 2019 3:08 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Israeli military court of Ofer decided to release Palestinian prisoner Suheir al-Barghouthi, 59, on a bail of 10,000 ILS (almost $3000) and another third-party bail.

Lawyer of the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS), Munther Abu Ahmad, said that the court had previously ruled for al-Barghouthi’s release on a bail twice, but froze the decisions as the Israeli prosecution requested an appeal.

Al-Barghouthi will be released later Monday.

Al-Barghouthi whose husband and three sons are currently held in Israeli prisons while her fourth son was shot and killed by Israeli forces, in October, was being held under harsh conditions in a solitary confinement in the HaSharon Israeli prison.
Al-Barghouthi has not been allowed to go out to the prison's yard since her transfer to the HaSharon prison, pointing out that the IPS has not allowed her to receive clothes; al-Barghouthi has been in the same clothes since her detention on February 5th.
Al-Barghouti was detained from her home in the Kobar village, north of the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, on February 5th.

Israel accuses al-Barghouthi's son Assem of carrying out an attack killing two Israeli soldiers near Ramallah on December 13, one day after his brother, Saleh, was reportedly shot and killed by Israeli soldiers north of Ramallah.
