He spent four decades in the prisons of the occupation
The Palestinian Prisoners Club, in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, launched the campaign “40,000 letters of loyalty from Palestinian students to the Dean of Prisoners, Karim Younes,” as the date of his freedom approaches after 40 years of captivity, in the Israeli occupation prisons.
And inside one of the halls of the new Al-Bireh secondary school for girls, blank lined papers were distributed to the students, with a picture of the prisoner Karim Younes at the top, to write their letters to him under the title: “A telegram of congratulations on freedom to the dean of the Palestinian prisoners, the struggling leader Karim Younes.”
Other female students worked on drawing pictures of his face and others expressing the arrest of children, and another was playing the Oud instrument and singing patriotic songs with a sweet voice.
The Prisoners’ Club and the Ministry of Education intend to select the best 20 letters written by students from Al-Watan schools, and to deliver them to the prisoner, Karim Younes, at his reception, which will be held in Ramallah.
The prisoner, Karim Younes, is scheduled to be released on January 5, 2023, after 4 decades of detention in the Israeli occupation prisons.
Watch and wait
It is noteworthy that the family of the prisoner Karim Yunis – in her hometown in the town of Ara in the Palestinian interior – is waiting on January 6, 2023 eagerly, to set a date with freedom and end 4 decades of waiting for the moment when her son, the dean of Palestinian prisoners, was liberated from the prisons of the Israeli occupation. .
The prisoner Younes, 66, entered his 40th year of captivity on January 6, 2019, and is in Hadarim prison, where he was arrested at the age of 23 on charges of kidnapping and killing an Israeli soldier, belonging to the Fatah movement, and engaging in armed resistance.
Since 1967, the captive movement has recorded more than a million cases of arrest of Palestinian and Arab prisoners, including thousands of 48 Palestinians who were arrested and convicted of supporting the Palestinian struggle and served varying sentences, in addition to thousands of them who were arrested after the Nakba and during the period of military rule that lasted until the end of 1966.
