Jerusalem: Al-Issawi, Family of 3 prisoners, gets home demolition notice

PNN/ Jerusalem/

The Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem on Wednesday gave a demolition notice to the Issawi Family, located in the village of Issawiya, central Jerusalem, under the pretext of no building permit.

Family of the three Palestinian prisoners, Medhat, Samer, and their sister, lawyer Shireen Al-Issawi, considered the decision an illegal and malicious act by the Israeli intelligence and occupation authorities.

To her part, the mother of the prisoners, “Um Tariq” (65 years), said that the family has lived in that home since the 70’s, emphasizing that the occupation is trying to undermine the will and steadfastness of the youth in Israeli prisons.


The central occupation court in Jerusalem ruled against lawyer Shirin Issawi, 38, to four years of imprisonment, and her brother Medhat, 42, was sentenced to eight years, while their brother Samer Al-Issawi was re-arrested about two years ago, after he was released from prison in the Shalit Deal in 2011.
