Al-Jihad Movement reveals contacts to solve the file of the striking prisoners in the occupation prisons

Today, Saturday, a leader of the Islamic Jihad movement in Palestine announced contacts from mediators to resolve the file of Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli occupation prisons in protest of their administrative detention.

Khaled al-Batsh, a leader in the movement, said during a press conference in Gaza that the mediators’ contacts – whose identities have not been determined – “have gone a long way in an attempt to end the suffering of the striking administrative prisoners and close their arrest file.”

He expressed his hope that the ongoing contacts would result in a near relief in the file of the striking prisoners, while emphasizing that the resistance would not leave them alone in the prisons of the Israeli occupation.

Al-Batsh was speaking after a sit-in organized by the National and Islamic Forces Committee in front of the headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Gaza in solidarity with the administrative prisoners on hunger strike in Israeli prisons.

The Powers Committee called – in a statement during the sit-in – for the widest popular solidarity with the issue of prisoners and to stage demonstrations in the West Bank at points of contact and clash with the occupation army.

Six Palestinian prisoners, since different periods, have continued their open hunger strike in the occupation prisons, in refusal of their administrative detention.

Yesterday, Friday, the European Union issued a statement expressing its concern about the critical health condition of the two prisoners, Kayed Phosphos and Miqdad Al Qawasma, who have been on hunger strike for more than 100 days in Israeli prisons to protest their administrative detention.

The European Union stressed that the Israeli authorities must “respect international law and stop the excessive use of administrative detention without actual charges, as well as avoid loss of life.”

In a related context, Tariq Ezz El-Din, a spokesman for the Islamic Jihad Movement in the West Bank, said that what was revealed by the “What is Hidden is Greater” program is the tip of the iceberg about the suffering of male and female prisoners in the occupation prisons, stressing that the issue of prisoners contains details that cover a series of software.
