Israel renews detention of Palestinian lawmaker Khalida Jarrar

June 16, 2018 3:01 P.M. (Updated: June 18, 2018 3:17 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities renewed the administrative detention of leading member of the PFLP Khalida Jarrar for three months for the third consecutive time.

The Israeli military court of Ofer approved the renewal order that would keep Jarrar in detention for three more months.

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) said that the renewal of Jarrar’s detention would not stop her from continuing her initial role in resisting the occupation.

The PFLP said in a statement that “this is an attempt to absent influential leaders from events and developments in Palestine.

The renewal of her detention comes two weeks before Jarrar’s release date.

Israeli forces had detained Jarrar on July 2nd, 2017; a year after he release, her detention was renewed late December 2017 for six months that would end on June 30th, 2018.

Jarrar, a leading member of the PFLP, deputy at the PLC (Palestinian Legislative Council), heads the PLC’s prisoners’ committee and acts as the Palestinian representative in the Council of Europe, an international organization promoting human rights and democracy around the world, was previously detained in 2015 and had spent 14 months in Israeli jails.
