Follow @AlqassamBrigade Hamas strongly condemned the systematic crimes of the occupation against Palestinian captives, and the international and Arab silence regarding the poor conditions of prisoners; especially the patients and the hunger strikers.
Hamas movement said in a statement on Thursday that the serious ongoing abuses against Palestinian prisoners represent flagrant violation of international norms and conventions and should not be tolerated or condoned.
The statement hailed the steadfastness of prisoners and stressed that the Israeli attempts will not undermine their steadfastness and will not succeed in breaking their will, adding that Hamas will make every effort to free them from jails.
It also called on the Palestinian Authority to halt security coordination with the occupation in response to its aggression.
“Seeing the tragic situation experienced by the prisoners in occupation jails, we call on our brothers in Fatah and PA in the West Bank to shoulder their responsibilities before our people and our prisoners and take bold steps against the occupation by stopping all forms of security coordination.”
Hamas also called on human rights and humanitarian organizations to take urgent action and put pressure on the occupation to immediately release the captives, and demanded the Palestinian people and factions to join forces in defense of and support for prisoners.
