OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Dozens of Jerusalemite natives staged a rally in support of Palestinian prisoners and hunger strikers in Israeli jails following the Friday prayers in Al-Bustan sit-in tent in Silwan district of east Jerusalem.
Sheikh Mousa Saeed, who gave the Friday khutba, urged the Jerusalemite people to remain steadfast and uphold their religious and national constants.
The Sheikh also called for supporting the prisoners in Israeli jails until they get their freedom.
Following the prayers, the attendees rallied around the tent chanting slogans in solidarity with the prisoners and in protest at Israel’s repressive policy against them.
The protestors called on the international community and the Egyptian leadership, the broker of the prisoner swap deal, to intervene to save the lives of hunger strikers.
In Arraba area south of Jenin city, the national and Islamic political forces also organized after the Friday prayers a rally and a ceremony in support of the Palestinian hunger strikers in Israeli jails.
A reporter for the Palestinian information center (PIC) said that hundreds attended the ceremony carrying Palestinian flags and pictures of the hunger strikers.
Many national figures, including ex-detainee Sheikh Khader Adnan, gave speeches hailing the steadfastness of the hunger strikers and criticizing the Palestinian Authority for neglecting their cause.
In this regard, the Palestinian center for human rights expressed its deep concern over the lives of administrative detainees Ayman Sharawna and Sameer Al-Issawi, who have been on hunger strike for more than four months.
The center held the Israeli regime fully responsible for their lives and demanded the international community to pressure for their release.
It called on human rights groups to intensify their efforts to stop Israel’s misuse of detention and end its imprisonment of Palestinians administratively without fair trials.
