Palestinian Factions in Gaza Hold Confrence in Solidarity with Palestinian Prisoners

B.M | DOP -

Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip held a conference on Friday, March 10, 2023, to express solidarity with Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Khaled Al-Batsh, a committee member of the National and Islamic Forces (NIF), said that Palestinian prisoners continue their protest steps despite the Israeli threats and repressive measures.

The NIF reported that the prisoners go through a serious stage, calling for effective actions to stop the Israeli aggression against them.

Al-Batsh pointed out that the dialogues with Israeli occupation authorities didn’t lead to any results. Israel has not yet responded to the prisoners’ demands.

In addition, Al-Batsh called on the Palestinian people to increase action to support the Palestinian prisoners. He also warned against the dangers of ‘Israeli aggression against prisoners.’

Earlier in February, a statement by the High National Emergency Committee for Palestinian Prisoners pointed out that prisoners will continue disobedience and go through an open-ended hunger strike by the start of the holy month of Ramadan.

Palestinian figures showed that about 4,780 Palestinian prisoners, affected by Israel’s punitive measures, are held inside Israeli jails, including 160 children, and 29 females.
