Palestinian brothers Ibrahim and Mohamed Ighbariya entered their 26th year in Israeli occupation jails, a rights group reported Tuesday.

According to the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS), the Palestinian brothers Ighbariya have been held in Israeli jails for 26 years running.

In march 2014, the Israeli prison authorities reneged on their promises to release the two brothers as part of the fourth prisoner batch expected to be freed at the time.

Mohamed, held in Gilboa lock-up, earned an MA degree and wrote four books under Israeli detention. His brother Ibrahim, locked up in Ramon prison, wrote one book.

Ibrahim, aged 51, and Mohamed, 48, are both natives of al-Musheirefa town, in 1948 Occupied Palestine. Both were arrested by the Israeli police on February 26, 1992, and sentenced to life.
