Jailed Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti will be transferred out of solitary confinement. The surprise transfer of Barghouti to a cell with other inmates came a few days before Sunday’s elections for Palestinian Authority president. Barghouti has been held in the Ohalei Keidar Prison near Beersheba since he was convicted in May of involvement in four terror attacks, which claimed the lives of five innocent civilians.
