RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Lawyer of the Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS) said that prisoner, Lama Khater, 42, is being subjected to harsh and intensive interrogation at the Ashkelon Israeli prison, on Wednesday.

Lawyer Firas al-Sabbah, who visited Khater in prison, said that Israeli forces detained and removed Khater from her home in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron on predawn Tuesday to the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba, where she was held until 7 a.m.

Khater was then transferred to the Ashkelon prison.

Khater told her lawyer that she was handcuffed to a chair throughout the entire interrogation; she also pointed out that interrogators deprived her of sleep and continued to curse and shout at her.

Lawyer al-Sabbah confirmed that a court hearing will be held this Thursday, 26th of July, 2018.

Khater is a Palestinian female writer and a mother of five children, who was detained for unknown reasons from her home during predawn raids carried out by the Israeli forces.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, there are 5,900 Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli prisons, 60 of whom are female prisoners.
