Bulk341GAZA (PNIC):-The Israeli occupation forces at daybreak Thursday kidnapped the Palestinian activist Osama Shaheen, 35, from his home in al-Khalil’s southern town of Dura, in the southern occupied West Bank.

According to the Palestine Prisoners Center for Studies, Israeli forces broke into the home of journalist Osama Shaheen, also the center’s head, and wreaked havoc on the building before they kidnapped him.

Shaheen was released from Israeli jails just nine months ago after he had served a one-year administrative detention sentence, issued with neither charge nor trial.

The center condemned Israel’s abduction of Saheen without explicable reasons, attributing it to the man’s activism in favor of the prisoners’ cause.

Shaheen has been diagnosed with critical health problems and suffers severe backaches as a result of a cartilage infecting his body. He was expected to undergo a surgery prior to his abduction.

Shaheen had been subjected to arrest and detention by the occupation forces on seven occasions and spent a total of nine years in Israeli jails.

The Palestine Prisoners Center for Studies appealed to all human rights institutions to take urgent action so as to release Shaheen, along with other Palestinian activists and journalists, held arbitrarily in Israeli dungeons.
