Samidoun mourns the passing of former prisoner, lifelong struggler Nabiha Diab Mohammed

Nabiha Diab Mohammed upon her liberation from Ansar prison camp.

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network extends its deepest condolences to our European coordinator, Mohammed Khatib, his entire family, and the broader community on the passing of his beloved aunt, Nabiha Diab Mohammed, on 28 September 2020, after a long struggle with serious illness as well as the ongoing health effects of injustice, oppression, imprisonment and exile.

She was known not only as a pillar of the family, but also as a committed struggler for the Palestinian people, especially in the Ain el-Helweh refugee camp in Lebanon, where she always cherished a future of return to Palestine and nourished that love and dedication to return among future generations.

We mourn her as a struggler for Palestine, a lover of justice and of her people, as well as a former political prisoner who was jailed with her fellow Palestinian and Lebanese revolutionaries in the notorious Ansar prison camp in occupied southern Lebanon by the Zionist occupation forces.

Her legacy in supporting, sustaining and bringing together her family, her deep adherence to Palestine and to a revolutionary future of return and liberation continues to inspire so many of those whose lives she touched. We treasure her memory and pledge to continue to honor that memory with struggle until her aspirations for liberation, for the entire Palestinian people, are achieved.
