Abu Bakr expressed his pride in all the prisoners who have succeeded in turning the prisons into true schools, through the development of the study process with courses and classes and hundreds of them joining the Palestinian universities through distance learning. He also emphasized the ongoing efforts to remove all the obstacles and ease the students’ completion of their studies, and also to create a true partnership with the study institutes in order to help them quickly integrate into society after their release…
District Governor Akram Al-Rajoub noted the ongoing achievements of the prisoners through the creation of new fields of victory every day that passes.
