The Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees denounced the Israeli occupation authorities’ arrest and detention of the struggler and leader Khalida Jarrar, member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, feminist and Palestinian national leader.

“The fact that the occupation authorities are administratively detaining Jarrar reflects their ongoing crimes against the Palestinian people and their utter defiance of international laws and norms, especially since Khalida Jarrar is an elected member of Parliament and one of the most prominent women human rights defenders in Palestine. The Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees urge all activists and campaigners for freedom, in Palestine and internationally, to build campaigns of solidarity with Khalida, and with all of the Palestinian political prisoners, until their freedom.”
