Arab League calls for worldwide protection for Palestinians held by Israel

Arab League calls for worldwide protection for Palestinians held by Israel

Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan said "Barghouti's strike is motivated by internal Palestinian political motives and therefore includes unreasonable demands regarding prisoner conditions".

They are also calling for Israel to ease restrictions on the entry of books, clothing, food and other items from family members.

The issue of Palestinian prisoners and detainees held in Israeli prisons and detention centers transcends one of individual human rights; it is also one of collective rights of an entire people - the Palestinian people, who continue to be deprived of the right to self-determination and sovereignty - basic fundamentals of worldwide law.

"It is to be emphasised that the IPS does not negotiate with prisoners".

Also, the prisons, where the detainees have access to TV, had their satellite receptions blocked from all Palestinian and Arab TV stations.

He said Labour would fight the election promising a fairer society and economy, and "a Brexit that works for all". Since then she had repeatedly ruled out calling an early election to get her own mandate.

The Public Editor of the New York Times took the newspaper to task for failing to identify Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti as a convicted murderer of Israeli Jews.

The site further states that since 1967, 200 detainees have been "martyred" in prison due to "torture, medical negligence, being killed directly after detention or shot dead inside prison by soldiers and guards".

Israel said the move by the prisoners, many of whom were convicted of attacks or planning attacks against Israel, was politically motivated. It inflicts pain exclusively on those who participate and on their loved ones, in the hopes that their empty stomachs and their sacrifice will help the message resonate beyond the confines of their dark cells.

Top Israeli officials have vowed not to negotiate with Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike, adding that the death penalty would "prevent" imprisoned Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti from staging the nationwide protest.

1,100 Palestinian security prisoners declared they will carry out a hunger strike, according to the Israel Prison Service.

Marking Palestinian Prisoners' Day on Monday, Palestinian officials have called for a large show of public support for the prisoners as rallies and other activities are planned in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. "Let us all push for the largest worldwide, popular and official movement to stand by the prisoners in this critical time", he added.
