Israel and the Occupied Territories: Dr Rabah Hasan 'Abd al-'Aziz Mohanna
Dr Rabah Mohanna, Vice-President of the Arab Medical Association in Gaza, was released on 26 October 1992, after almost a year in administrative detention. He was arrested on the eve of the October 1991 Middle East Peace Conference in Madrid, about which he had publicly expressed reservations. Dr Mohanna is reported to have lost his job at al-Shifa hospital as a result of his detention. The Israeli authorities alleged that he was an active member of the PFLP in Gaza but Dr Mohanna has denied both membership of and activities on behalf of the PFLP.
