Prisoners' center calls for supporting hunger strikers
[ 28/11/2012 - 07:08 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Palestinian center  for  prisoners' studies considered supporting Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, particularly the hunger strikers, a legitimate national and moral duty.

The Media Director the center, researcher Riad al-Ashqar, called for launching a wide campaign in solidarity with the hunger striking prisoners, before it is too late.

Ashqar noted that the prisoner Ayman Sharawna, on hunger strike since 151 days, and the prisoner Samer al-Issawi, on hunger strike since 121 days, are exposed to a serious danger and suffer from a seriously deteriorated health status.

He also denounced the world silence towards their cause, which encouraged the occupation to continue to neglect their lives and ignore their just demands to be released.

The Center urged for activating the issue of the striking prisoners to raise the world's awareness about its importance and seriousness.

It also called for organizing events that would put pressure the occupation, as well as the Egyptian side which sponsored the Wafa Ahrar deal, to make real efforts to release the hunger strikers from the Israeli jails.
