Al-Tur…Sentencing a Jerusalemite woman to actual imprisonment
November 9, 2020


On Monday, the Israeli Magistrate Court’s judge sentenced a Jerusalemite woman from the village of Tur.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center stated that the judge sentenced Ms. Wafa’ Abu Jum’a, 52, to 6 and a half months in prison, on charges of "threatening settlers during their storming of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and incitement on Facebook".

Wafa’ Abu Jum’a explained that she had been pursued since 2015, and she was arrested three times during the last period, for interrogation about "settlers' incursions into Al-Aqsa and being in it and incitement on Facebook through the posts on her page," and every time she was released on conditions.

Abu Jum’a added that the court issued its verdict about two months ago, and it was “public service" for a period of 8 months, which is working in Israeli institutions for 8 hours a day. When she went to submit her papers in Beer Sheba and start her work as stipulated in the ruling, she was rejected by the institution under the pretext of her health condition, and was transferred again to the court, which issued a prison sentenced against her.

Abu Jum’a said that she suffers from diabetes and heart disease, and pain in her hand after being run over in an accident. She also needs surgery on her leg.

Abu Jum’a said: “The ruling decisions, whether they were “public service” or“actual imprisonment” are unfair decisions aimed at breaking the morale and psychological well-being, and it is the tax of steadfastness and love for Al-Aqsa in the city of Jerusalem.
