GAZA, (PIC) — The Palestinian PM, Ismail Haniyeh, asserted that the support for striking prisoners’ cause in occupation jails is open to all options and all means, calling on the media to take more interest in this issue.

Haniyeh said – in his speech during the celebration of World Press Freedom Day organized by the Union of Journalists, on Thursday on the theme ‘New Voices: Media Freedom Helping to Transform Societies’- that the prisoner’s battle is in fact the battle of all Palestinians, the entire Arab and Islamic world and all free people, calling on the Palestinian and Arab media to give the strike’s issue all attention and all media coverage.

He stressed that the interaction with the striking prisoners is good but not sufficient emphasizing on the need to support all prisoners no matter to which political faction they belong.

Samuni family

The PM denounced closing the investigation into the massacre of the Samuni family, urging the world to activate the Goldstone report, which documented the crimes committed by the occupation, especially the killing of civilians, including the Samuni family.

He also stressed that Israel cannot falsify the facts, and said: “they will not escape from the Palestinian people’s resistance”

The Elections

Haniyeh emphasized on the need to go to the elections as a means of peaceful transfer of power, and appointment of representatives of people in all political and trade union fields adding that the elections represent a responsibility that requires honesty and should be encouraged at all levels.

Appreciation of media

The PM expressed his appreciation for the Palestinian, Arab and world’s liberal media men promising to guarantee them all freedom.

He said: “media freedom is one aspect of human freedom” that should not be limited as long as it respects this profession’s values, serves the nation and reflects the reality and the truth.

He also called for the launch of a broader extent of this freedom and called the union of journalists in Gaza to launch an initiative aiming at achieving a press unity in the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza.
