After long years in jail, Israel releases prisoner Yehya Ashour
After over 10 years in Israeli jails, the Israeli security authorities released Palestinian prisoner Yehya Ashour, a senior member of al-Aqsa Brigades, the dissolved armed wing of Fatah.
According to a reporter for the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) in al-Khalil, the Israeli occupation authority released 42-year-old Yehya Ashour from Negev jail after he completed his prison term, which lasted for 10 and a half years.
Relatives along with scores of national figures and citizens received him upon his release.
The Israeli occupation forces kidnapped Ashour in 2007 and accused him of being affiliated with al-Aqsa Brigades and being involved in armed activities against Israel.
