Jerusalem, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation has deported French-Palestinian human rights lawyer Salah al-Hammouri to France, the Palestinian Ministry of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs said Sunday.
The ministry added that the Israeli occupation authorities decided to deport al-Hammouri to France after holding him for 9 months without charge or trial.
The Israeli occupation authorities detained al-Hammouri on 7 March and held him under administrative detention since then.
In October 2021, the Israeli occupation authorities approved an order to revoke Hammouri's Jerusalem residency and banned his French wife from entering Jerusalem.
A married father of two and a field researcher with the Ramallah-based Addameer prisoners’ rights group, al-Hammouri has been systematically targeted by the Israeli occupation authorities, which placed him under administrative detention for several months, hacked his phone, and revoke his Jerusalem residency.
The Israeli occupation authorities previously detained Al-Hammouri between 2005 and 2011 before releasing him as part of the 2011 Wafaa al-Ahrar prisoner swap deal with the Palestinian resistance.
