Mass march in Gaza for prisoners

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Palestinian prisoners continued their hunger strike for the 11th consecutive day in protest of Israeli policy.

A mass march went out in Gaza City, which was called by Hamas and Islamic Jihad to support the prisoners.

Prime Minister in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh affirmed his government’s support of the prisoners. He added during a speech in Al-Omari mosque that the prisoners are united in their battle inside Israeli jails.

He stressed the demands of the prisoners which include ending solitary confinement, canceling the so-called Shalit law, and returning to a normal visitation program.

Israel restricted conditions for Palestinian prisoners in 2010 to pressure the release of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who was freed in October.

He sent a message to the Palestinian people and their leaders saying that “we are united behind bars and genuine demands for unity and commitment to the principles for which the prisoners were detained, and to stop the security coordination with the occupation and not to go back to negotiations.”

He also called on Egyptian intelligence, who helped execute the Shalit deal, to make Israel commit to what has been agreed on in the deal.
