32 female prisoners, including 9 mothers suffer in the occupation prisons

The Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Committee said that 32 Palestinian female prisoners are languishing in the Israeli occupation prisons, including 9 mothers.

The Committee added in a press statement on Monday that the prisoner, Shorouk Dwaiyat, 24, is in Damoun Prison, where she was arrested on October 7, 2015, the moment she was shot by live bullets by a colonial settler on Al-Wad Street, near the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The occupation authorities had previously sentenced the female prisoner Dwaiyat to 16 years in Israeli occupation prison, in addition to a fine of 80,000 shekels.

In this context, the detainee, Khitam Saafin, 58, from Ramallah, is still being held in Damoun prison, after the occupation forces issued an administrative ruling against her for four months, but the occupation forces turned her file into a case.

Al-Sa'afin was arrested on November 2, 2020.

It is noteworthy that Al-Saafin is married and has a son and two daughters. She is active in feminist union work. She chaired the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees in 2010. She is a member of the General Secretariat of the General Union of Palestinian Women, a member of the Regional Alliance of Women Defenders in the Middle East and North Africa, and Deputy Head of the Secretariat of the World March of Women and a member of the General Authority of the Union of Agricultural Work Committees.
