Palestinian prisoners prepare escalatory steps
After the IOF assaulted Palestinian women prisoners, the Islamic Jihad says in a statement that what the Prison Service did was a crime that demands escalation.
The Palestinian Prisoners' Media Office said that tensions are still flaring in Israeli occupation prisons in light of the systematic assaults launched by the Prison Service on women prisoners, noting that the prisoners donned their prison uniforms to express their readiness for any developments.
The Office said that if things remain unchanged until this evening, the prisoners will take escalatory steps that will be announced in due time.
The Supreme Leadership Council of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad's prisoners also issued a public statement on Saturday, wherein it said that the movement stands against an enemy that has no honor and does not keep its words or promises, maintaining that it is clear that the systematic attack on Palestinian women prisoners is a crime that demands escalation.
Al-Qanou: Hamas supports Abou Hawash in his hunger strike
Hamas Spokesperson, Abdul Latif Al-Qanou tweeted that Hamas announces its support for prisoner Hisham Abou Hawash, who has been on a hunger strike for more than 123 days in refusal of his unjust administrative detention.
Abou Hawash's continued hunger strike shows the courage and steadfastness of the prisoners against their Israeli jailors, as well as their ability to retrieve their demands and achieve their goals.

Palestine's Resistance factions had earlier released a statement on December 7, wherein they saluted the Palestinian people on the anniversary of the first Intifada and affirmed their adherence to resistance as a strategic choice to protect Palestinians' rights.
They also reiterated their support for Palestinian prisoners, especially the administrative prisoners who are still on hunger strike, calling for popular and mass escalations in their support.
The Chairman of Hamas Political Bureau, Ismail Haniyeh, revealed earlier this month that Hamas has four captive Israeli soldiers, held by its military wing Al-Qassam Brigades, and asserted that these prisoners "will never see the light of day unless our prisoners are released."
