West Bank MPs slam PA for not protecting their rights

[ PIC 19/03/2012 – 11:12 AM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)- The Hamas change and reform parliamentary bloc denounced the Palestinian authority (PA) for its passivity and silence towards the Israeli violations being committed against its lawmakers in the West Bank.

In a press release on Monday, the Hamas lawmakers questioned the role of the PA in protecting their rights and moving diplomatically to pressure the Israeli occupation to release many of them in jails.

They demanded the PA and the Palestinian prisoner society to react towards the protest step taken by MP Ahmed Al-Haj Ali, 73, who has been on hunger strike for six days despite his age and weakening health in protest at his administrative detention without any guilt, and to work on his immediate release.

The Hamas MPs held the Israeli occupation authority and its jailers fully responsible for the life of Haj Ali and any harm happening to him, and also expressed their dismay at the absent role of the Red Cross towards all Palestinian hunger strikers in Israeli jails.
