Gaza, Al Ray - A Palestinian prisoner has Monday had a female child from a smuggled sperm, local media reported.
The new child of Samir Abu Fayed, who is sentenced 18 years, was born in the Arab Care Specialized Hospital in Ramallah.
Named ‘Hurriyeh’, the Arabic equivalent to ‘Freedom’, this child is the 15th of the children born to Palestinian prisoners through smuggled sperms.
Governor of Ramallah and Al Bireh, Layla Ghanam, in a check-on visit to the prisoner's wife, considered the child's birth as a challenge to the Israeli occupation and an episode of the prisoners’ long struggle in the Israeli jails.
Prisoners' will is stronger than occupation's tyranny, Ghanam stressed, adding “the Palestinian people will stick to hope despite of the compounded pain of the Israeli oppressive measures, pointing out that a new hope is being generated with Horriya’s birth.
