Today, Tuesday, the Jordanian prisoner, Abdullah Abu Jaber, 44, arrived in the Kingdom after his release from the prisons of the Israeli occupation, in which he spent more than 20 years. He is the oldest Jordanian prisoner in Israeli prisons.
The Jordanian Foreign Ministry had said that the Israeli authorities had informed its embassy in Tel Aviv that all necessary procedures and arrangements would be completed for the release of Abu Jaber this morning, and his transfer to the Sheikh Hussein Bridge separating Jordan and the Palestinian territories.
And last Sunday, the Israeli occupation forces returned the prisoner Abu Jaber to the Negev prison, while he was expected to be released, and the Palestinian Prisoners Club said, in a statement, that the Israeli occupation forces obstructed the process of releasing Abu Jaber on the pretext that his papers were incomplete, and the occupation authorities held He has a court in order to “legislate” his continued detention.
During the long years of his captivity, Abu Jaber waged several hunger strikes, the most prominent of which was a hunger strike in late 2015 and early 2016, when his strike lasted for more than 70 days to demand his release and return to his family in Jordan.
