Posted in 1 by beyondtheborder on April 24, 2009

Israeli authorities released 51-year-old Nablus municipal government representative Sheikh Hussam Ad-Din Qatalony from Israeli prison following a 10 months term late on Thursday.

Qatalony spent most of his term at the Megiddo and Negev prisons, Nablus mayor Adli Ya’ish told Ma’an by phone Friday morning.

Israeli forces took Qatalony from his Nablus home on July 15 2008 during an arrest campaign targeting several well known figures in the city.
