Occupied West Bank, Press TV - In 1991, Fares was 24 years when Israeli forces imprisoned him. 12 years ago was the last time his mother was given the permission to see her only son.
Since then, Fares’s sick mother has been crying to such an extent that she lost her sight . Now, her single desire is to hug her imprisoned son before she dies.
When we visited Fares’s mother, she was in a very poor health and was barely able to talk to us. She was praying for her son in the Israeli prison to stay as strong as he has always been. Fares was supposed to be freed in the last prisoner release last year .
His mum even prepared a bedroom for him and wrote notes on the walls to welcome her hero. But until now all she got has been empty promises.
Human rights organizations have also called on the Red Cross to further push Israel to live up to its commitments to the schedules of family visits and respect the prisoners’ rights. T
The agony of the Palestinian prisoners' mothers is not only limited to Feras's mother who lost her sight before having one more chance to see her son.
