Mo’nis Ahmed Al Aqqad

Mo’nis Ahmed Al Aqqad
  • Sentence: Life sentence
  • Khan Younis city

Name: Mo’nis Ahmed Al Aqqad

Residence: Khan Younis.

Date of arrest: June 21st, 2002.

Sentence: Life sentence.

 

Background:

On the 12th of December, 1976, Khan Younis city received a nice baby with pure smile knowing nothing about the future of this Palestinian hero Mo’nis Ahmed Hussain Al Aqqad. Mo’nis was born to a modest Palestinian family taught him the Quran and the Sonna, so he rose on Islamic virtues.

As usual, he moved between different schools during his elementary and preparatory grades. After having the secondary certificate, he joined the faculty of Shareaa (religious law) in the Islamic university of Gaza. Later, he continued to prepare for the master degree in his field, but the arrest cut the way of his study.

Sociable man:

The prisoner “Abu Allaith” was very obedient to his parents; he did everything to satisfy them. He was lovely with his brothers and kind with his relatives; he used to visit them usually. With his friends, he was indeed loyal. His parents were looking for the day he gets married but, unfortunately, the occupation interrupts nice dreams as usual.

Arrest & charges:

On June 21st, 2002, while Mo’nis was in Al-Mawasi region in Khan Younis in his home, the whole area was surrounded, homes were searched and he was detained.

The Zionist court accused him with different charges as:

Belonging to Hamas movement. 

Working in the rows of Al-Qassam Brigades. 

Helping the martyr Mohammed Farahat in a previous operation.

Observing different Zionist targets.

 

After two years of detention, he was sentenced to life.

 

Suffering:

He was transferred between the Zionist jails. He started in Nafha; then they moved him to Ashqelon, and later he sent back to Nafha where he stills till now. He suffers, as all prisoners, from a very bad treatment as well as the solitary detention.

His family says that previously the prisoner’s mother, single sisters and the youngest brother were allowed to visit him, but no one is allowed to visit him since two years.

The Palestinian mothers stand everyday in the sunset looking to the sun with hope in their eyes and yearning to the day of freedom for sons.
