GAZA, Palestinian and Islamic factions on Monday warned the Israeli occupation to end ongoing crimes against Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
This was derived from a solidarity stand organized by the National Prisoners Committee in front of the headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), with many public and political participation, along with dozens of families raising slogans condemning the Israeli crimes committed against prisoners, torturing the prisoner Samer Al-Arbeed during his interrogation that led to hospitalization.
Then, Head of Hamas Political Bureau Ismail Haniyeh said in a speech, on the sidelines of his participation in the solidarity stance, that factions stand fully by the prisoners’ side for freeing them from Israeli jails until they return to their homes.
Israeli occupation deliberately abused prisoners with live bullets and medical negligence, as done to the prisoner Samer Al-Arbeed, Haniyeh underlined.
On another viewpoint, the liberated prisoner and Member of the Committee of Prisoners in the National and Islamic Forces, as well as Leader of Popular Front for the Prisoners Committee Allam Al-Kaabi said in a speech during the solidarity stance that the Israeli occupation authorities were responsible for Al-Arbeed’s safety.
Mass arrests carried out by occupation authorities will not undermine the determination of Palestinians who choose to struggle, whatever the sacrifices may be, Al-Kaabi stressed.
He called on Palestinians in all sectors to rise up with the rebellious youth, to take it to the streets and clash with the occupation army on all fronts, sending a message to the Israeli occupation that Palestinians will not let their prisoners be defenseless targets.
He called on human rights organizations and the UN to intervene urgently and save Al-Arbeed, saying that the silence of these institutions in front of violations of criminal prison services against prisoners and the continuation of slow execution of prisoners are equivalent to complicity, getting involved in the crime.
According to official statistics, many prisoners in occupation prisons amounted to about 5,700 prisoners, while the Palestinian Prisoners Center for Studies confirmed last Saturday that occupying forces arrested 119,000 people since the outbreak of the Al-Aqsa Intifada in 2000, including 2,070 women and girls, 16,790 children in addition to arresting 68 deputies from the Palestinian Legislative Council.
