[ PIC 04/03/2012 – 12:57 PM ]

BEIRUT, (PIC)– Political bureau member of Hamas and in charge of the prisoners file in the movement said that Palestinian prisoners were preparing for an open ended hunger strike in April.

Aruri said in a TV statement on Saturday evening that Hamas has put five conditions for the improvement of prisoners’ conditions including ending solitary confinement, allowing family visits, improving living conditions within the detention cells and wards, and allowing newspapers into the wards.

“We are in constant contact with the Egyptian patron of the prisoners’ exchange deal to improve their (prisoners) conditions but the (Israeli) occupation always renege on its promises,” Aruri said.

He said that the Israeli occupation authority had pledged to improve prisoners’ conditions as part of the exchange deal.

The Hamas leader said that his movement was struggling to improve conditions of those prisoners but “our strategic effort focusses on their release”.
