Palestinian Reform Bloc praises European Parliament for condemning Israeli violations

Sept. 6, 2008 3:07 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 6, 2008 3:07 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - The change and reform bloc in the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) praised the demands of the European Parliament for the release of Palestinian prisoners , particularly PLC and ministerial prisoners detained in Israeli jails.

The bloc praised the statement issued by the European Parliament that held Israel responsible for the violation of human rights, international law and the Geneva Convention. They said that the statement was considered an appropriate way to pressure Israel to release these prisoners, considering these detentions a crime against humanity.

The bloc called on the European Parliament to exercise more pressure on Israel so they might eventually release the more than 11,000 detainees. The bloc stressed the importance of releasing detained PLC member Dr Aziz Dweik, on account of his poor health.
