Occupied Palestine, ALRAY - The Israeli military court of "Ofer" has handed a 38-month prison term and a fine of 5,000 shekels ($1,350) to Palestinian detainee Ahmad Abu Safaqa.
The Israeli occupation army detained Abu Safaqa after storming and ransacking his home in the occupied West Bank city of Tulkarm on 4 November 2011.
Abu Safaqa suffered bruises and scratches after Israeli occupation soldiers violently beat him up when detaining him.
The Israeli occupation authorities then moved him to the "Petah Tikva" detention center, where he was subjected to brutal torture and lengthy interrogations for over two months.
After postponing his trial more than 15 times, the Israeli military court of "Ofer" handed Abu Safaqa a 38-month jail term and a hefty fine.
The Israeli occupation is holding around 4,900 Palestinian detainees, including 34 women and nearly 160 children, in inhumane and harsh conditions, according to Palestinian prisoners' rights organisations.
