An Appeal to end the solitary confinement of a Palestinian journalist
The family of detainee Waleed Khalid Harb, 38, the director of Palestine Newspaper, from Iskaka village near the West Bank city of Salfit, appealed the International Journalist Union and Reporters Without Borders to intervene for his release, and for ending his solitary confinement.
The family stated that Harb spent nearly six years under administrative detention orders, without charges or trial, and a total of 12 years imprisonment. He has been barred from his visitation rights, and confinement to solitary, since ten months.
Harb is considered the oldest Palestinian administrative detainee.
The family called on International Human Rights organizations, and the Red Cross, to intervene and oblige Israel to end his solitary confinement.
It is worth mentioning that from his prison cell, Harb wrote several books and poems.
