More than 500 Palestinians detainees have been imprisoned for more than 15 years in Israeli jails, human rights researcher Abdel Nasser Farwana has said.
In a press statement on Sunday evening, Farwana explained that there would be a considerable rise in the number of Palestinian prisoners jailed for more than 20 years in the next two years.
Now, there are 50 Palestinian detainees who have been in Israeli custody for more than 20 years, Farwana pointed out adding that this number would jump to 300 by the next couple of years.
Farwana called on all Palestinians, particularly resistance factions, to work on releasing all Palestinian detainees from Israeli jails.
