In another example of the lengthy sentencing practices especially targeting Palestinian youth and women in Jerusalem, Shorouq Dwayyat was sentenced to 16 years in Israeli prison by a Jerusalem court on Sunday, December 25. Dwayyat, 19, from the village of Sur Baher, was also fined 80,000 NIS (approximately $21,000). She was shot by an Israeli settler and seized by occupation forces on October 7, 2015 in eastern Jerusalem and accused of attempting to stab an Israeli settler. Witnesses reported that she was harassed by the settler prior to the alleged incident.

Dwayyat is a student at Bethlehem University who was studying history and geography. Classes at the university were cancelled for two days after her shooting and arrest in October 2015.

Stand with Dwayyat to demand that Israel release her, 63 other imprisoned Palestinian women, and all 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners immediately, and that Hewlett Packard companies end their contracts with Israeli prisons and detention centers, occupation and security forces, and checkpoints and settlements now.

Help build a growing international campaign to boycott HP over the companies’ support for Israeli crimes.

Support the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
