The Israeli occupation released Thursday MP Mohammed Abu Tir (68), after seven months of administrative detention.
Abu Tair, a member of the Legislative Council of the Bloc for Change and Reform, has been expelled from occupied Jerusalem since 8 October 2010, following the withdrawal of his identity card.
The Interior Ministry on that date has decided to withdraw the identity of MPs: Ahmed Atoun and Mohammed Abu Tir and Mohammed Totah and former Jerusalem Minister Khaled Abu Arafa, claiming to be “unfaithful to Israel”.
MP Abu Tair spent a total of 34 years in Israeli jails and was elected to the Legislative Council in 2006.
On March 13, 2019, IOF arrested Abu Tair at dawn after raiding his house in Umm al-Sharayet neighborhood, south of Al-Bireh.
