RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Professor of international law Hanna Issa said the Israeli violations which the Palestinian prisoners are exposed to amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity under international law.

Hanna told Quds Press that the Israeli occupation regime had killed since 1967 more than 203 Palestinian prisoners.

He said that Israel’s violations are subject to the international condemnation rules and the Palestinians could prosecute Israel for its crimes against the prisoners through the UN human rights council and the Internation Court of Justice.

The relatives of the victimized prisoners also could go to the international criminal court to file their complaints in order for its prosecutor to investigate their claims.

The int’l law expert criticized the international legal and human rights groups for its passivity towards the issue of the Palestinian prisoners and the violations committed against them, calling for more active role in this regard.
