PA Prime Minister honors Palestinian imprisoned terrorists’ strike, conveys “appreciation,” calls on all Palestinians to show solidarity.

Headline: "Hamdallah to the prisoners: We are standing beside you in the [hunger] strike battle on the way to freedom"

"Palestinian [PA] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah emphasized that his government is working on all levels to provide the prisoners' cause with the legal and international momentum and support it deserves.
For Palestinian Prisoner's Day Hamdallah conveyed a greeting and appreciation to the female and male prisoners in the Israeli occupation's prisons, and emphasized the Palestinian leadership's diligence in presenting the prisoners’ suffering in order to guarantee the end of the occupation, the breaking of its chains, and their unconditional release.
He added: 'We are again feeling the suffering of the prisoners and the cruelty of the occupation, but at the same time we feel pride and honor in the resolve of the prisoners’ movement and its sacrifice. We, the leadership and the people, stand united behind you and raise our heads high before the battle of freedom (i.e., a prisoner hunger strike that began on April 17, 2017) that you are waging under the leadership of fighter Marwan Barghouti (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered) and his brothers from all the factions of national and Islamic activity.' Hamdallah also called on the Palestinian people and all of the national activists and institutions to increase their solidarity [activities] so that the prisoners' message will reach all parts of the world."
