After 18 years, Palestine leader released from Israeli jail

A Palestinian political leader arrested for the past 18 years was released from an Israeli prison on Thursday night.

Hassan Fatafta, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, was arrested in 2003.

He was released from Ofer prison in western Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency after his release, he said prisoners held by ‘Israel’ remain committed to the Palestinian cause.

“Palestinians must preserve the spirit of their struggle to achieve the goals that these prisoners fought for and for which they have been jailed,” Fatafta said.
