Foreign Ministry to Roya: Release of Jordanian prisoner Abu Jaber from Israeli Occupation postponed

Sunday, a source in the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the release of the Jordanian prisoner who has served the longest sentence in Israeli Occupation prisons of all Jordanian prisoners, Abdullah Abu Jaber, has been postponed after 20 and a half years.

The source said the reason behind the postponement was the failure to complete procedures for the release of Abu Jaber.

They added that the Jordanian embassy in Tel Aviv had completed and submitted all the papers for the return of Abu Jaber back to the Kingdom to reunite with his family.

However, the source suggested he would arrive at the King Hussein Bridge Monday, after the Israeli Occupation authorities complete the required procedures.

The prisoner's family was only able to visit him twice since his arrest on December 29, 2000.

Notably, Abu Jaber is one of 22 Jordanian prisoners detained by the Israeli Occupation authorities in its prisons.

The Palestinian Prisoners Club said Abu Jaber was meant to be released Sunday, June 6.
