HOW CAN YOU TAKE ACTION TODAY

ADMINISTRATIVE DETENTION

Salah was subjected to administrative detentions with no charges and no trials three times during his lifetime. Salah is currently in Ofer Prison held yet again with no charges and no trial.

FAMILY SEPARATION

Upon return from France, Salah’s partner Elsa was detained at the airport, was denied contact with her husband and family, had her belongings confiscated, and was refused medical attention despite being seven months pregnant. Elsa was deported to France two days later.

ID-REVOCATION

At the time of his latest arrest, Salah continues to wage a legal battle challenging his illegal residency revocation which was officially declared on 18 October 2021 by the Israeli minister of Interior Affairs. As a result Salah is confined to the area of Kufr Aqab a 6,8 km2 in fear of forced deportation.

SPYWARE INFILTRATION

An investigation conducted by Front Line Defenders in collaboration with CitizenLab and Amnesty International’s Security Lab, reveal that Salah, and five other Palestinian HRDs, have been hacked by Israeli NSO Group’s notorious Pegasus spyware.
