Palestinian Rasmeye Odeh, arrived to Jordan after being deported from the United States.


The deportation of Odeh came after she hid her condemnation of being a part of a bombing that took place in Jerusalem in 1970.


She was condemned after two people were killed in the 1970 explosions in Jerusalem.


According to Associated Press, Odeh who is now in her seventies, said she was involved in the bombings because she was subject to torture.


Odeh was released from prison in 1979, under an agreement to exchange prisoners between "Israel" and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.


She was condemned for lying when she applied for the U.S. visa where she did not reveal her criminal record back then.

 

Odeh worked as an assistant for the Director of the Arab-American Action Network, which provides social and educational services.
