Palestinian factions back prisoners in upcoming freedom battle
The Palestinian Captive Movement announces the beginning of an open hunger strike starting Thursday, the 14th of September.
The head of the Office of Martyrs, Prisoners and Wounded in Hamas, Zaher Jabarin, stated that Palestinian prisoners will not yield to the decisions of Israeli occupation Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, stressing that the Palestinian people will stand behind Palestinian prisoners during their hunger strike.
In a press release, the Hamas official affirmed that the open war against the prisoners through criminal Zionist government decisions will not break their determination or affect their morale. He also noted that the occupation will have to face prisoners who "do not accept injustice" in Israeli prisons and will resist by all means possible.
Jabarin further expressed confidence in the prisoners' ability to achieve victory against the enemy and force it to yield to their legitimate rights and have it restore their seized ones.
In a separate statement, Yaser Mazhar, the Director of the Communications Department of the Muhjat Al-Quds Foundation, confirmed that Palestinian prisoners are facing a significant battle starting on the 14th of this month in opposition to the decisions made by Itamar Ben-Gvir's extremist government.
Mazhar emphasized the importance of safeguarding the achievements of Palestinian prisoners and called for the cessation of all decisions and policies that aim to restrict the prisoners' basic rights. He also underscored the demand for the restoration of their seized ones.
On its account, the Supreme Emergency Committee for Palestinian Prisoners said the prisoners announced that they would initiate an open hunger strike on the 14th of September in response to the recent policies of the Israeli prison administration. The Committee also called for solidarity and support for the Palestinian prisoners in their struggle for freedom and justice.
This is happening as four Palestinian prisoners are on hunger strike in protest of their detention at the hands of the Israeli occupation, most notably the administrative detention of three of them.
