Hamas Islamic Resistance

Press release on growing tensions in Israeli prisons

03 February, 20

The clashes between Palestinian detainees held in the Israeli jails and Israeli occupation forces reflect the detainees’ anger over ongoing Israeli violations against them.

We stress that the arbitrary measures threatening the detainees’ humanitarian rights and violating previous treaties will lead to a popular intifada (uprising) against such violations.

Hamas holds the Israeli occupation fully responsible for the life of Rabei’ Abu Nawas along with all the Palestinian detainees, warning it against any hostile measures, which will lead to undesired consequences inside the jails.

We call on the Palestinian people to voice their support and solidarity with the Palestinian detainees in their fight against the Israeli barbarism and hostility and not to leave them alone in the face of the unabated Israeli aggression.
