Clowns in Gaza protest to free imprisoned Palestinian circus teacher


Palestinian clowns in Gaza protested outside the offices of the International Committee of the Red Cross on 8 February, urging the immediate release of Mohammed Abu Sakha, 24, Palestinian circus teacher and performer being imprisoned in administrative detention without charge or trial by the Israeli occupation.

Abu Sakha was arrested by Israeli occupation forces in December 2015 as he traveled from his home in Jenin to the Palestinian Circus School in Bir Zeit, where he teaches children with disabilities circus performance. He has performed throughout Palestine and internationally with the Circus School. There is an international campaign for his release.
