Recently released Palestinian prisoner Anhar Al-Deek has today given birth to her son Alaa.
Anhar was released on September 2 after a mass social media campaign calling for her to be allowed out of prison to give birth to her son.
Israel relented and released her on condition she remain under house arrest and pay bail of 40,000 shekels ($12,500).
"I was battered severely even though I said that I was pregnant."

Twenty-five-year-old Al-Deek is from the Kafr Ni’ma town west of Ramallah and has been detained for five months on charges of attempting to carry out a stabbing attack near an illegal settlement outpost, however, no verdict has yet been issued against her.
Al-Deek was concerned that the harsh prison conditions would not be suitable for her delivery, particularly since the delivery was going to be cesarean.

She still though may have to go back to prison with her newborn baby if she is to serve time for her political activities.
