PA Minister of Prisoners' Affairs Issa Karake: “Our nation deserves freedom – our nation that gave and gave. Many have died. It [our nation] has given much, and has sacrificed many of its youth and best sons. This great nation, this nation which includes [the likes of] Fakhri Barghouti, Khaled Al-Azraq, Issa Abd Rabbo, Rizq Salah, Khaled Asakra, Abu Mahmoud and many of the prisoners sitting here – [such as] Adnan Al-Afandi – who have spent over twenty years in the occupation’s prisons; this nation, whose youth have spent their lives in prison; a nation that deserves life; a nation that deserves victory; a nation that deserves freedom.”
