The Israeli occupation prisons department released the patient boy Amal Nakhleh, 18, after 16 months of administrative detention.
According to the Prisoners' Information Office, the occupation forces arrested the child when he was 17 years old, after they had raided his home in Jalazoun camp, north of Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank. Nakhleh was suffering from a rare disease called severe muscular debilitation, requiring special care for the patient and receiving medication regularly.
The office added that the occupation court issued an administrative arrest warrant for 6 months, which was later reduced to 4 months, and was renewed 4 consecutive times. The office also explained that this arrest was not the first for the prisoner Nakhleh, but had previously been arrested only two months before his current arrest.
