‘Israel’ refuses to release Khalida Jarrar to attend her daughter funeral

Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli occupation authorities have refused to release the Palestinian political prisoner Khalida Jarrar to be able to attend the funeral of her daughter, whose death was announced on Sunday evening.

Palestinians launched yesterday a campaign that calls to free Jarrar from Israeli jails, as she will be denied the right to bury her daughter.

Suha Jarrar, Khalida’s daughter, was announced dead on Sunday evening, as her body was found near Palestine medical complex in Ramallah.

Khalida Jarrar, who is a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was detained in March 2021 and was sentenced to two years in Israeli jails.

Jarrar knew about the death of her daughter on the radio, before even her lawyer informed her.

“It was very hard and painful to know that my darling Suha passed away, I have missed her too much. Please tell all my beloved ones to take care, I am strong,” Jarrar told her lawyer after being informed about her daughter’s death.

Khalida Jarrar has been imprisoned several times since 2015 by the Israeli occupation and spent numerous terms under administrative detention.

Jarrar was first arrested in 1989 and held for a month without trial.

For her second detention in 2014, she was sentenced to 15 months in prison.

She was arrested for a third time in 2017.

She was released from Israeli jails in February 2019 after spending 20 months in prison, but the Israeli occupation detained her again in October 2019 from her home in Ramallah city, and she was accused of taking a position in the PFLP.

Jarrar was elected as a member of the Legislative Council in the last Parliamentary elections held in 2006.
