Solidarity with Khalida Jarrar
At approximately 1:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 2, dozens of Israeli soldiers arrested Khalida Jarrar, a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, after breaking down the door of her home in Ramallah.  She has been issued an administrative detention order, imprisoning her for six months without charge or trial. In addition to being a member of the Palestinian Parliament, Jarrar is a prominent women’s rights activist and advocate for the rights of political prisoners.
“My mother always speaks the truth to power. She is a woman and a loved leader. Also, my mother was recently involved in working on Palestine joining the International Criminal Court. They went after her for all of these reasons,” said Yafa Jarrar, one of Jarrar’s daughters.
