Palestinian man marks 40th year in Israeli jail

(MENAFN) A Palestinian man punished to life in jail enters his 40th year in custody in an Israeli prison.

Maher Younes, who is 64 years old, was detained by Israeli militaries in the town of Ara in northern Israel on January 18, 1983, in line with a declaration by the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS), which is an NGO that supports the rights of Palestinian convicts in Israeli prisons.

The NGO added the Israeli experts set Younes’ life sentence at 40 years, so he is in his final year in jail.

The rights group said that Israeli experts had earlier rejected to comprise Younes in any convict swap agreements.
