JENIN, (PIC)– The captive Bilal Diab, on hunger strike for 62 days, sent a letter on Friday from Ramla prison hospital in which he confirmed his steadfastness and his determination to continue his hunger strike until “his release or martyrdom”.
In his letter, he called on the Palestinians to follow the steps of Sheikh Adnan Khader and Hana Al-Shalabi, who forced the Israeli occupation authority to release them.
He pointed out that despite his ongoing fatigue and severe pain; he is steadfast thanks to the Palestinians’ support.
Meanwhile, the imprisoned Hamas leader Sheikh Khalid Al-Haj, who has been in administrative detention for over a year, called for new ways to support the striking prisoners against the Israeli occupation authorities’ repressive measures.
In an exclusive statement to PIC, he said that winning the battle against the Israeli Prison Service and obliging it to meet the prisoners’ demands need massive support to go hand-in-hand with the prisoners’ strike.
He called for support on the part of the European parliaments and the UN Human Rights Council.
He also said that this strike should succeed regardless of sacrifices.
Sheikh Khalid Al-Hajj is one of the leading Hamas figures in Jenin and spent about ten years on aggregate in administrative detention.
