GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) held in Gaza, on Thursday, an emergency session discussing Jaradat’s murder in Israeli jails under torture, and the prisoners’ conditions, especially the hunger strikers.

The session was attended by Minister of Prisoners’ affairs in Gaza, Dr. Atallah Abu Sabah and representatives of prisoners’ families.

Dr. Ahmed Bahar, First Deputy Chairman of the PLC, held the occupation authorities fully responsible for the killing of Jaradat, describing it as a “war crime”.

Bahar called to form an international investigation committee under the auspices of the United Nations regarding “the martyrdom of the prisoner Jaradat during interrogation and the Israeli torture methods and inhuman practices against Palestinian prisoners,” noting that more than 4,600 prisoners are being held in 17 detention centers.”

Bahar called on states that have relations with the Israeli entity to boycott this state because of its continued crimes against the prisoners.

He also called for launching an international humanitarian and legal campaign and an international coalition of various human rights organizations to stop the Israeli arbitrary policy of administrative detention against Palestinian prisoners, especially the elected MPs.

He called on the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva to bear its legal and humanitarian obligations towards prisoners and to pressure the occupation authorities to stop its violations against Palestinian prisoners.

Bahar called on all parliaments in the world “to hold a special session to discuss the difficult conditions of the prisoners and to prosecute the occupation in international courts”

The PLC First Deputy appreciated the Palestinian people and factions’ role in supporting the prisoners’ issue, calling for more solidarity events as a prelude for a third Intifada against the occupation.

Bahar asked the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah “to boycott the negotiations and to stop the security coordination with the occupation for the martyrs’ sake especially Jaradat.
