PIJ: We will not be silent upon attempts to kill prisoner Abu Hawash
During a solidarity demonstration with Palestinian prisoners, an Islamic Jihad movement official says the movement will not be silent in the face of Israeli attempts to kill prisoner Hisham Abu Hawash.
Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement official Daoud Shehab stressed Thursday in Gaza that any assassination by the Israeli occupation will be met with a response from the Al-Quds Brigades and the Palestinian Resistance.
During a solidarity demonstration with the Palestinian prisoners, Shehab underlined that the movement will not remain silent upon "Israel's" attempts to kill the hunger-striking prisoner Hisham Abu Hawash.
Earlier, sources confirmed to Al Mayadeen that there are Egyptian and international efforts pressuring "Israel" to end the arrest of Abu Hawash, noting that the Resistance notified Egyptians about a possible escalation in case Abu Hawash loses his life.
For his part, the Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement (PIJ), Ziyad Al-Nakhala, warned that the movement will consider prisoner Hisham Abu Hawash's possible martyrdom an assassination carried out by the Israeli occupation with premeditation.
In a statement, Al-Nakhala stressed that if Abu Hawash is martyred, the PIJ will deal with the matter in accordance with its commitment to respond to any assassination.
Very critical stage
In addition, the Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission warned that the health condition of the hunger-striking prisoner, Hisham Abu Hawash, is deteriorating rapidly and has reached a very critical and dangerous stage.
The media spokesperson for the Commission, Hassan Abd Rabbo, announced that Abu Hawash is still being held at the Ramla Prison Clinic and that his life is in danger due to a shortage in fluid and salt in his body, knowing that his weight went down to 40 kilograms and his internal organs are shutting down.
