images_News_2013_04_07_rally-0_300_0[1]RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Some families of prisoners and ex-detainees on Saturday afternoon rallied outside the headquarters of the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah city to urge it to immediately act to save the lives of patients and hunger strikers in Israeli jails.

During the rally, the protestors established a symbolic grave in Al-Umam square near the PA headquarters to always remind the PA leadership and the world of the issue of the Palestinian prisoners, especially the patients who face death in Israeli jails.

Amid intensive PA security presence, the protestors marched from the central area of Ramallah towards the square carrying pictures of prisoners.

The mother of ill prisoner Mohamed Taj stated that her son is in the Ramla hospital, and he suffers from lung damage and cannot breathe without an oxygen tube connected 24 hours to his mouth.

The mother appealed as she was crying to the world’s free people to intervene to swiftly have her son released, adding that she has not been sleeping well since she heard about the death of prisoner Maysara Abu Hamdiya.

For his part, ex-detainee Thaer Halahela demanded PA president Mahmoud Abbas to assume his responsibility and move to save the lives of patients and hunger strikers in Israeli jails.

Halahela said the detainees suffer and face death while the PA does not care for what happens to them in Israeli prisons.

“Do we have to wait until Issawi leaves the prison a dead body as what happened with Abu Hamdiya? There are also 25 Palestinian prisoners suffering from cancer in Israeli jails,” he said.
