Resheq: Issawi forced occupation to acquiesce

[ PIC 24/04/2013 – 09:23 PM ]

images_News_2013_04_24_resheq_300_0[1]BEIRUT, (PIC)– Political bureau member of Hamas Ezzet Al-Resheq has renewed his movement’s commitment to prioritize the issue of prisoners above all other national issues.

Resheq was speaking in a press statement on Wednesday commenting on the news that Jerusalemite hunger striker Samer Issawi would be released from Israeli occupation jails to his home in occupied Jerusalem after eight months from today in return for ending his strike.

He said that Issawi won his freedom with his empty stomach after around eight months of hunger strike. Issawi forced the Israeli occupation to acquiesce to his demands, Resheq added.

The Hamas leader hailed the Issawi family for withstanding social, security, and psychological pressures that aimed at dissuading Issawi from persisting in his hunger strike.

Resheq also heaped praise on the prisoners who displayed solidarity with Issawi, reminding all that many Palestinians were still held in Israeli custody and face daily suppression and brutal violation of their rights.

The essayists explore the history of torture in Israel, the daily challenges that practitioners face in seeking accountability for torture and CIDT in Israel, and the changing face of torture.
