RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Fatah central committee member Tawfik At-Tirawi said Friday that he was ready to help any Palestinians detained by Israel, after testifying for a detainee in an Israeli military court.

At-Tirawi testified in the case of Jamal Al-Hajj, charged with involvement in attacks against Israel. Al-Hajj was a security officer in the West Bank when At-Tirawi was chief of general intelligence.

The Fatah official said he was ready to testify to exonerate any Palestinian prisoner detained by Israel, adding that it was the least he could do for prisoners who sacrificed their lives and families for their country.
