November 28, 2014

The Minister of Internal Security decided to transfer the 20-year old Islam Izzat Natsheh from Anata and Sadeq Gheith to administrative arrest for 6 months. Amjad Abu Asab, head or Jerusalemites detainees and prisoners families committee, explained that the Internal Security Minister transferred the prisoner Islam Natsheh to administrative arrest four days after he was arrested from his house in the village of Anata. Natsheh was interrogated in Al-Maskobyeh regarding his posts on Facebook and especially about a prayer he directed to God to obtain Martyrdom several days ago which was considered by the interrogators to be intent to Martyrdom. After they were unable to prosecute him, the Internal Security Minister decided to transfer him to administrative arrest for five months. Lawyer Tarek Barghouth (lawyer of Prisoner Ministry) will follow-up with all the legal procedures to appeal this decision; a session will be held at the District court on Sunday to make a decision regarding the duration of the administrative arrest. The Minister of Internal Security also issued a similar decision against Sadeq Gheith who was arrested last Tuesday after raiding his house in Silwan along with his brother Adnan Gheith, Secretary of Fateh Movement in Jerusalem, who is still imprisoned. Abu Asab explained that three Jerusalemite prisoners (holders of Israeli blue ID) are currently under administrative arrest. They are: MP Sheikh Mohammad Abu Ter fm the village of Um Tuba, Raed Fayez Mteir from Qalandia and Midhat Obeid from the village of Esawyeh.
