UFree demand an immediate release of Samer Allwai

UFree demand an immediate release of Samer Allwai (Take Action)

UFree calls on the Israeli occupation to immediately release a Palestinian journalist Samer Allawi (46 years), who is a reporter for Al Jazeera TV channel and was arrested early this month as he was leaving home town in the West Bank.

Journalist Allawi was arrested during his attempt to travel across the Allenby Bridge on his way to Jordan after a family visit to the village of Sebastia, Nablus (West Bank), and then was transferred to the interrogation centre Jalama within the city of Haifa before extending his detention for four days pending investigation and yet there isn’t any news of his release.

UFree holds the Israeli occupation fully responsible for the life of the journalist Allawi as he presently held in detention by Israeli security forces, while according to the testimonies of prisoners being subjected to severe torture during interrogation.
UFree calls on all human rights activists to join our campaign to release the journalist Allawi and to stop the Israeli violations in freedom of expression and right of movement to Palestinians.

Please respond to Israel’s violations of human rights by urgently writing to human rights groups operating in the occupied Palestine calling to condemn Israel’s violations in freedom of expression and right of movement.
