Israel frees Palestinian after 40 years in jail

Tel Aviv, Jan 19 (Prensa Latina) A Palestinian by the name of Maher Younis was released, after spending 40 years in prison for the death of an Israeli soldier, two weeks after the liberation of his cousin Karim, who served a similar sentence.

The man was 22-years-old when he was arrested and sentenced in January 1983 to life imprisonment, later commuted to 40 years.

According to Israeli radio station Arutz Sheva, the police summoned his family and warned them that they would not tolerate any celebrations or Palestinian flags, which the far-right government in Tel Aviv has banned from public spaces.

Two weeks ago, his cousin was also released after serving 4 decades in prison for participating in the same operation.
