#PalHunger | Barghouti: We are ready to confront the prison administration

[ PIC 02/06/2012 – 04:13 PM ]

Nablus, (PIC)– Commander of the armed wing of Hamas, the Qassam Brigades, in the West Bank prisoner Abdullah Barghouti warned of the ongoing procrastination of the Israeli prison service (IPS) in the implementation of the deal it signed with the strike leadership committee.

Barghouti told his lawyer, who came for his visit in Gilboa prison, that if the Israeli occupation authorities and IPS disavowed from the deal’s items especially the one concerning administrative detention, the prisoners will resist and are ready to confront the occupation either through a new “battle of empty stomachs” or through civil disobedience.

He stated that he is detained in the same section with two Jordanian prisoners and confirmed that there is a possibility that he and the two other prisoners will launch an open hunger strike in order to allow them family visits.

Barghouti has been prohibited from seeing his family since he was arrested more than nine years ago and was held also since then in solitary confinement which ended following the prisoners’ mass hunger strike.

He was the leader of Hamas’s military wing in the West Bank during Al-Aqsa intifada. He was arrested in March 2003 and sentenced to 67 life terms and 1550 years in a verdict that is the longest in the history of Israeli courts.
