Hussein, a married father of three, spent more than 23 years in Israeli prisons as he was frequently kidnapped and imprisoned.

He was first imprisoned for four years, and then after he was released, he was kidnapped again and was imprisoned for 15 years, then starting in 2005 until this day, Israel has been frequently kidnapping and imprisoning him under Administrative Detention.
