Al-Nakhalah: Possible martyrdom of prisoners deliberate killing
The Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement says ignoring the hunger strike of prisoners Awawdeh and Rayan calls for the resistance to fulfill its duties to protect these prisoners.
The Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, Ziad Al-Nakhala, considered Thursday that the Israeli occupation's singling out of Palestinian prisoners, carrying out isolation and repression practices against them, as well as ignoring the hunger strike of prisoners Khalil Awawdeh and Raed Rayan, calls for the resistance and the Palestinian people to fulfill their duties and responsibilities to protect these prisoners.
In a statement, Al-Nakhala reminded the Israeli occupation that the possible martyrdom of one of the hunger-striking prisoners will be considered a premeditated murder, which requires from the resistance to carry out its duties in accordance with previous obligations.
Earlier, Al-Nakhalah stressed that the Islamic Jihad movement in Palestine will not accept the continued humiliation of the Palestinian people, especially the prisoners.
On Monday, Hadeel Bader, mother of prisoner Raed Rayan told Al Mayadeen that her son is now at an extremely critical health stage, adding that his body is exhausted.
The mother warned that her son cannot speak or move, and is suffering from a severe blurring of vision, constant headaches, pain in the limbs, and convulsions in the hands and feet.
Rayan, 27, from Al-Quds, continues his open hunger strike for the 106th day in a row, while Awawdeh, 40, is on his 131st day of the strike.
Through their hunger strike, the two Palestinian prisoners are protesting the renewal of their administrative detention.
