CAIRO, (PIC)– The Arab parliament held the Israeli occupation regime fully responsible for the death of Palestinian prisoner Arafat Jaradat as well as the lives of other detainees in its jails.

In a press release on Monday, head of the Arab parliament Ahmed Al-Jarwan mourned the death of Jaradat, stressing that his death confirms that Israel still persists in violating the international law regarding the rights of the detainees.

“The Arab parliament stands by the brave Palestinian people and their hunger strikers in Israeli jails,” Jarwan highlighted.

He appealed to international human rights groups to shoulder their responsibilities towards the Palestinian prisoners and hasten to have Samer Issawi and his fellow hunger strikers released from Israeli jails.

In a related incident, dozens of Jordanian unionist and political figures staged on Monday a rally in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners outside the building of the trade unions in Amman.

In his speech, dean of agronomists’ union Mahmoud Abu Ghanima hailed the Palestinian people and their prisoners for their fortitude in the face of the Israeli occupation, describing their steadfastness as a kind of resistance.

Abu Ghanima slammed what he described as the international and Arab action groups for their weak role in defending the cause of the Palestinian prisoners.

For his part, council member of the Jordanian bar association Naser Kamal declared in a written statement circulated during the event that his association regularly follows up and documents Israel’s violations against the Palestinian prisoners.

According to his statement, the bar association intends to officially urge the UN human rights council to probe Israel’s violations against the prisoners and plans to prosecute Israeli war criminals in international tribunals.
