Israel releases Palestinian journalist on 'harsh terms'

Aug. 22, 2018 11:49 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 28, 2018 11:14 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities released a Palestinian journalist, on Tuesday evening, after being held in detention in the Israeli Ofer prison for 21 days.

Lawyer of the Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS), Abed al-Nasser Nubani, said that Palestinian journalist, Alaa Rimawi, was released on "harsh terms" after 21 days of detention.

Nubani said that the terms included Rimawi paying a bail of 10,000 shekels ($2,746), that he remains under house arrest and banning him from practicing his journalistic work for the next two months.

Rimawi along with three other Palestinian journalists, all working for the Hamas-affiliated al-Quds TV, were detained during raids by Israeli forces on July 30th from the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

The other three journalists were released on August 10th after paying a 5,000 shekels ($1375) bail each.

During the detention, PPS confirmed that Rimawi declared an open hunger strike as a form of protest against being detained for his journalistic work.

Israeli authorities had previously considered al-Quds TV a "terrorist" organization and banned its work inside of Israel.
