The Israeli authorities today re-detained a Palestinian man immediately following his release after serving a 7-year prison term for resisting the Israeli occupation, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Local sources told WAFA that Mohammad Kamal Obeid, 25, from the neighborhood of Isawiyya, in the occupied East Jerusalem, was leaving Naqab prison after completing his prison term when he was re-detained and taken to the Russian Compound police station in West Jerusalem.

Obeid’s family, which was waiting for him outside the Naqab prison, was not able to see him.

Israel often re-detains prisoners from East Jerusalem in order to delay or prevent their families and neighborhood from celebrating their release from prison and to welcome them as heroes.
