Gaza, Al Ray - Israel Prison Service (IPS) transferred Shireen al-Issawi, the Jerusalem lawyer and activist, to Hasharon prison, northern occupied West Bank.

In a press statement, Jawad Boulos, the Head of the Legal Unit at the Palestinian Prisoner Society, quoted Shireen’s disapproval of the Israeli measures against her and the five lawyers detained recently.

On Saturday, Israel’s Central Court delayed the trial of six Palestinian lawyers from Jerusalem to Thursday to continue judicial proceedings.

The lawyers are Medhat al-Issawi, Shireen Issawi, Mahmoud Abu Sneineh, Amjad Al-Safadi, and Nadeen Egrayib, and Omar Eskafi.

Israeli authorities alleged that the six lawyers passed messages from and to Hamas and Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip to Palestinian prisoners on a commission.

Issawi denied the Israeli claims, asserting that what she and her colleagues did is fully pursuant to the professional conduct.
