Shorouq Dwayyat is released after eight years in Israeli jail
Following our earlier report, it has announced that Shorouq Dwayyat, who was jailed in 2015 and had been serving the longest sentence among Palestinian female prisoners in Israeli jails, has been released.
Reporter Faiz Abu Rmeleh is at the Dwayyat family home in Jerusalem and has sent these images of Shorouq being reunited with her mother.
Dwayyat was 18 when she was arrested and held in the Damon prison in Haifa, accused of stabbing an Israeli settler with a knife. Her family denies these accusations.
“Shorouq is delicate and cannot harm an animal,” her father, Salah Dwayyat, told Al Jazeera at the time.
We will bring you more reaction to Shorouq's release soon.
