Israel – Release of Salah Hamouri (30 September 2018)

France welcomes the release yesterday of our compatriot Salah Hamouri, on whose behalf President Macron and the minister for Europe and foreign affairs appealed to the Israeli prime minister.

The French consular authorities regularly visited our compatriot during the 13 months he was held under administrative detention.

We hope that Salah Hamouri’s wife and son will have the right to travel to Jerusalem to be reunited with him.
