Longest-serving female Palestinian prisoner released after 15 years of imprisonment

Longest-serving female Palestinian prisoner Lina Jarbouni has been released today after 15 years of imprisonment. Lina Jarbouni, 43 years old, from Arabet Al-Boutof in Galilee, has been imprisoned since 18 April 2002.

Jarbouni was charged with communicating with the “enemy,” and sentenced by the District Court in the city of Haifa to 17 years in jail. Despite her suffering in Israeli captivity, she was in high spirits and had a strong character, and was mandated by female Palestinian prisoners to represent them and be their spokeswoman.
