Detainee Sentenced To 27 Life Terms, Fathers A Child
Palestinian detainee Ammar az-Zaben, 27, who has been imprisoned by Israel for 15 years and sentenced to 37 life terms, managed to father a child after being able to “smuggle” his sperm that was carefully carried by his visiting wife to a local fertility center in Nablus.
The newborn baby, Mohannad, is the first child ever to be born to a Palestinian political prisoner held by Israel as Israel denies Palestinian detainees the right to conjugal visits, and only grants this right to Israeli prisoners under certain conditions.
