Khaled Abu Toameh, The Jerusalem Post
After being denied the status of official resident, Palestinian journalist Mustafa Kharuf has been released from prison after being arrested earlier this year.
Lawyer Adi Lustigman, who represents Kharuf on behalf of HaMoked, said that Israel’s failed attempt to deport the journalist “strengthens oor claim that Jerusalem is his only home, and Israel must find a humane solution for him and his family. His parents, brothers and sisters live in Jerusalem. His wife and daughter also live in the city. All of them have Israeli status.”
