Ramallah, 11 Shawwal 1436/27 July 2015 (MINA) – Israeli forces released Palestinian elderly woman Amina al-Amodi after three days of house arrest.
Al-Amodi was charged with attempting to smuggle a cellphone into an Israeli prison for her son, Muhammed al-Amodi, from the Barqin town in Jenin.
Muhammed has been detained since 2006 and is sentenced to 11 life sentences, Ma’an News Agency quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA).
The woman was also fined 5,000 shekels ($784), as well as issued a third-party bail of 10,000 shekels ($2600).
The prisoners committee said that the lawyer of the Committee did his best to release Amina without any conditions.
The committee added that Amina, who is in her 70’s, has many chronic diseases and the Israeli prisoner service did not take her age or her condition into consideration while she was under detention. (T/P010/R04)
