Israeli Occupation Detain Palestinian Activist for Social Media Activity.

On Wednesday, October 4th, the Israeli occupation authorities released activist Samah Mhamid, aged 34, who was born and raised in the occupied Palestinian city, of Umm Al-Fahm. However, her release came with restrictions In growing free speech crackdowns.

According to news outlets in occupied Jerusalem, the Israeli occupation put Mhamid under house arrest until next Monday, preventing her from posting on social media, banning her from entering Jerusalem for a month, as well as issuing her with a fine.

Mhamid had been detained a week before her release by the Israeli occupation forces in the occupied Palestinian city of Jerusalem, where she was based, under the pretext that she incited hatred on her her Facebook account.

Lawyer Khaled Zabarqa asserted in press releases that Mhamid has not committed any form of religious violations, and all her posts are compliant with the legal system. Thus, there is no reason for her to be put under house arrest.

He believed her arrest “is part of the political, intellectual, and religious persecution and part of the persecutions of Palestinians in “Israel” and aims to scare the people to force them to stay away from Al Aqsa Mosque.”

The Israeli occupation authorities had previously issued Samah Mhamid with expulsion notices from Al-Aqsa Mosque, the most recent one issued on September 6th last year.
