Freedom Tunnel Prisoners: We Will Be Freed from above the Ground
The Freedom Tunnel prisoners’ defense team rejects the indictment and reiterates the prisoners' right to defend their freedom.
The trial session of the 6 Freedom Tunnel prisoners, which was held Monday at an Israeli occupation court in al-Nasiriyya has ended. The session also looked into the cases of 5 other prisoners, all of whom are from Jenin, on charges of aiding the Freedom Tunnel prisoners.
According to Al Mayadeen correspondent, the defense rejected the indictment and reiterated the prisoners' right to defend their freedom.
The Israeli occupation court accused prisoner Iyad Jaradat of aiding the prisoners of the Freedom Tunnel. "This is our victory... and we will be liberated very soon through a deal by Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades," Jaradat, said, expressing his confidence in the resistance while speaking in court.
In a stern tone that reflects utmost confidence, Ayham Kamamji said that the Resistance promised to liberate them from above the ground this time, reiterating, "[This time] We will get out through the door, from above the ground, just as we conquered them from under the ground.”
Prisoner Yaqoub Qadri confirmed that the Israeli occupation prison administration is holding them under very harsh conditions, describing the solitary confinement cells in which they are staying as "cemeteries".
Qadri said their freedom comes before anything else, asserting, "All of Palestine belongs to us; Jenin, Sakhnin, Umm al-Fahm, Gaza and al-Quds, and we will return to Palestine, all of Palestine."
In parallel, demonstrators took to the streets in Ramallah in support of the hunger strikers. They chanted and saluted General Commander of the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades Mohammed Deif and demanded the Resistance to strike a new deal to liberate the prisoners.
