Released prisoner explains in detail how terrorist prisoners smuggle out sperm from Israeli prisons

Released prisoner Rafat Al-Qarawi: “At first, we smuggled out [sperm] through the canteen. The Palestinian prisoner gives his family five items in a bag… It’s like going to a supermarket and you want to give your family something, a gift, candies, cookies, juice, honey, whatever you want… We would emit the [sperm] sample from our bodies seconds before they would call our names… We would emit the [sperm] sample from our bodies and put it in bags. We would wrap them in a certain way and mark them”

Official PA TV host: "You stress the word “mark” 100 times.”

Al-Qarawi: "100 percent.
We would mark the [bag] with the sperm inside it, mark it, and wrap it with strings and tie it the way we had told the family during the previous visit… We put the sample inside [a bag of] potato chips or cookies and resealed it professionally so that the prison guard or Israeli police officer would not be able to discern whether or not the bag had been opened. When you go out to the visit the bag is with you. No one touches it other than the prisoner. The one who comes to receive the sample is your mother or your wife… Of course everyone had their name written on their bag… The family goes out from the prison with the bag and goes to the Razan [Medical] Center [for insemination].”

Rafat Al-Qarawi – Palestinian terrorist and member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing), who was arrested in 2006 and sentenced to 15 years for his terror activity during the PA terror campaign (the second Intifada, 2000-2005) – PMW was unable to determine the details of his activity. During his imprisonment Al-Qarawi fathered four children by smuggling out sperm to his wife. Al-Qarawi was released in March 2021.
