Freedom is thanks to Mohammad Deif: Freed Abu Ajamia tells Al Mayadeen
Freed prisoner Rawda Abu Ajamia detailed to Al Mayadeen that an Israeli Knesset member has called for her rearrest since she has voiced support for Mohammad Deif.
After being liberated in an exchange and truce agreement with the Israeli occupation, freed prisoner Rawda Abu Ajamia hailed the commander of Hamas' armed wing, Mohammad Deif, saying that he was the one to thank for her and other prisoners' freedom.
Speaking to Al Mayadeen, Abu Ajamia called the feeling of being released "indescribable," describing harsh conditions for female prisoners in Israeli prisons. She detailed that they were prevented from leaving their rooms for a week and forbidden from seeing the sun after Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on October 7 and occupation forces took their televisions away.
Not only did the occupation take their televisions away, but Abu Ajamia detailed that the amount of time allocated for her and other female captives to use the restrooms was cut, and they could not see each other or even mingle.
She recounted that electricity was cut off from the prisoners, and Israeli nforces confiscated all their cooking materials as well as their shoes.
Abu Ajamia also detailed to Al Mayadeen that an Israeli Knesset member had called for her rearrest since she had voiced support for Deif, implicating that she was inciting support for Hamas.
She had cheered for Commander Deif in Beit Lahm after her release, reiterating her gratefulness to him.
When she was asked if she was aware of the events that took place on October 7, she recalled that Israeli stations broadcasted the events where prisoners saw them and rejoiced and reiterated their support for the Palestinian resistance, emphasizing that she remembers Commander Deif's statements when the operation was undergoing that its main objective was to release Palestinian prisoners.
It is noteworthy that the Israelis had arrested Abu Ajamia, on April 4 in a brutal manner from her home in the Dheisheh camp, south of Beit Lahm, and she spent 7 months in the occupation’s prisons.
Thirty-three Palestinian prisoners, including three female prisoners and 30 underage males, snatched their freedom early Tuesday, in the fourth batch of the Qatari and Egyptian-mediated prisoner exchange agreement between the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian Resistance.
Egyptian media reported that Hamas takes a truce extension to be a likely scenario, noting however that the conditions for the release of Israeli soldiers held by the Palestinian Resistance will be entirely different.
The media also added that "the ongoing negotiations include discussions on how to end the war and lift the blockade on Gaza."
An op-ed written for the New York Times on Tuesday details that the extension of the truce from four days to six is causing doubt over whether the Israeli occupation would resume its hostilities in Gaza or if it would stop its onslaught dead in its tracks.
The extension of the ceasefire has also prompted expectations that both the Israeli occupation and the Resistance may consider further short-term renewals.
As the duration of the ceasefire grows, external pressure on "Israel" to make it permanent intensifies, while internal pressures urge for its conclusion.
