  • 80% of Palestinian prisoners’ demands have been met: Official

    Ramallah (IINA) � Head of the Detainees Affairs Commission Issa Qaraqe said on Sunday that 80 percent of the demands of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, who ended their 41-day hunger strike on Saturday, have been met by the Israeli authorities.

    In a press statement, Qaraqe said these achievements came thanks to the agreement concluded between the leaders of the strike and the Israel Prison Service (IPS) in Ashkelon prison on May 26-27.

    A substantial transformation has been achieved by this strike, which constitutes an important achievement to be built on in the future, he noted.

    Qaraqe said that the appointment of prisoner Karim Younis, who has been imprisoned for 35 years, as a member of the Fatah Central Committee, is the greatest political achievement of this strike. He added that Younis' appointment comes in response to the Israeli attempts to fabricate charges of terrorism against the prisoners, and to emphasize the importance attached by the Palestinian leadership and people to the prisoners' cause, which is the core of any just peace in the region.
