images_News_2013_03_15_prisoners2_300_0[1]Hamas praised the European Parliament’s decision to send a delegation to assess the prisoners’ conditions in Israeli jails and to open an investigation into the circumstances of the death of prisoner Jaradat, stressing the need to protect the delegation’s work from any Israeli pressure.

We appreciate and welcome this positive step in dealing with the daily tragic situation of Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli prisons, and we stress the need to be free from any Israeli pressure or interference in the delegation’s work, the movement said in its statement.

Hamas called on the European Union and the international community to take practical measures to deter the inhuman Israeli practices against prisoners in its jails, including women, children and sick prisoners, and to prosecute all those involved in such heinous crimes, and to release the Palestinian MPs who were arrested in total violation of international conventions and norms.
