A documentary video was also displayed, illustrating the bad conditions of the Palestinian prisoners in the Israeli jails, and the suffering of their families.

For his part; Saad Dabbour, Head of Foreign Relations in the Palestinian Municipality of Jabalya in the northern Gaza Strip, pointed to the hardships facing the families of prisoners while visiting their sons held in the occupation jails, and the suffering of the captives’ families from Gaza, who have been barred from visiting their detained sons by the occupation authorities for seven years.

The Palestinian liberated prisoner Mahmoud Sarsak talked during the events about the conditions of his detention, which lasted three years, the forms of torture he was subjected to, and his hunger strike, which lasted nearly 100 days.

Sarsak also called for expanding the campaigns of solidarity with prisoners in the Israeli occupation jails.
