RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Authority cabinet called Tuesday upon the United Nations to mobilize immediately to exert serious pressure on Israel to release all Palestinian detainees.

Ministers called particularly for Israel to free veteran prisoners, affirming in a statement that at the same time Israel should treat detainees according to international conventions and covenants by granting them their rights stipulated in those agreements.

On the occasion of Palestinian Prisoner’s Day, the cabinet expressed the solidarity of the National Authority and the Palestinian people with the prisoners in their struggle and strike for basic rights.

"These include ending the strip-search policy, collective punishment and deprivation of visitations, prohibition of secondary and higher education, denial of newspaper access, continuous cell attacks and maltreatment."
