The Palestinian prisoner Mohammed Dawood, 58, on Sunday started his 32nd year in Israeli jails.
According to the Palestinian Prisoner Society, Dawood is among 27 long-serving Palestinian prisoners who have never been released, even for a short period of time, since the signing of Oslo Accords.
The Israeli occupation authorities refused to release these prisoners in 2014 in the fourth batch of the Wafa al-Ahrar prisoner swap deal.
Part of the long-serving group of Palestinian prisoners were released in the 2011 deal but re-arrested later, including Nael al-Barghouti who has served 39 years in Israeli jails so far.
The Israeli occupation authorities prevent most of Dawood’s family members from visiting him under various security pretexts.
