Her family said an Israeli military court made its decision after the military prosecution filed an appeal demanding more detention time for Nawal, International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

The court accepted the appeal of the military prosecution, and added the four months; in total, Nawal will be serving 2 years in Israeli prisons.

The family denounced the Israeli decision, and said that the court and the military prosecution just want to punish Nawal and her entire family.

Sa’ady was taken prisoner by the Israeli occupation army on January of 2012. The Israeli occupation army also killed two of her own sons.

Her husband, Bassam, was repeatedly kidnapped and imprisoned by Israel, and was also frequently arrested by the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.

Nawal al-Sa’adi, the prisoner, is a mother of two Palestinian martyrs. She was arrested in 2012 Jan when her husband was also in the Israeli prisons.

Over the last 43 years, an estimated 10,000 Palestinian women have been detained under Israeli military orders. In detention, Palestinian female prisoners constantly face torture, humiliation and horrendous living conditions.(T/Fauziah/P03/E01)
