#PalHunger | Turkey studies the striking prisoners’ demands

#FreeSamer | Global action to save the life of Hunger striker Samer Issawi

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– A group of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails have sent a letter to Turkish President, Abdullah Gul, and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, urging them to act to save the prisoners on hunger strike.

The letter came after the Turkish embassy in Ramallah has contacted Anatolia news agency’s reporter, asking him details about the prisoners’ demands, in response to the prisoners’ calls on Turkey and Egypt to save their lives before it is too late.

The prisoners expressed in their letter their satisfaction by the Turkish popular and formal position towards the Palestinian cause in general and the prisoners’ issue in particular, reminding by the Turkish Sultan Abdul Hamid’s historical position where he refused to hand Palestine to the Zionists.

The letter praised the Turkish previous position behind the Palestinian issue, calling for a Turkish strong position to save the Palestinian hunger strikers in Israeli jails.

“We call on you as brothers in humanity and in religion to act immediately before it is too late”, the letter added.

Four Palestinian prisoners are on hunger strike for more than 7 months in protest of their re-arrest after their release in a prisoner exchange deal in October 2011.
