Ramallah, MINA – The Palestinian Commission of Detainees’ and Ex-Detainees’ Affairs said there were still 11 Palestinian lawmakers in Israeli jails after the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) released on Friday MP Mohamed al-Tal.

In a statement on Saturday, the commission said the IOA released MP Tal after he spent seven months in Ofer jail, pointing out that Tal underwent surgery a few weeks ago after he suffered a health problem, PIC reported.

Among the detained lawmakers in Israeli jails, according to the commission, are Marwan al-Barghouthi, member of Fatah’s central committee, Ahmed Saadat, secretary-general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and Mohamed Mutair, a senior Hamas official.

Israel arrested about 70 Palestinian lawmakers and administratively jailed most of them with no indictment or trial since 2002.(R/R04/RS5)
