OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Detained Hamas leader Abbas Assayed has refused to give an interview to Israeli reporters, the Ahrar Center for Studies of Prisoners and Human Rights said.

The Hamas leader said in a letter that on the last day of the Israeli war, waged recently on the Gaza Strip, he had been urgently summoned to the office of the prison warden to be interviewed by a number of journalists.

The reporters were Avi Schrov from the Ha’aretz newspaper, and Zvi Ihzakila correspondent of the Hebrew Channel 10, in addition to a cameraman.

Abbas Assayed revealed that they wanted to conduct a TV interview with him for 45 minutes to talk about various issues on the arena but he refused, pointing to the state of war and the participation of the Israeli media in this war waged against the Palestinian people.

He also noted that the Israeli media is far from objectivity, credibility and professionalism, adding that that the prisoners’ experiences with the Israeli journalists in the mid of the last decade have not been encouraging.
