PLO prisoners’ affairs head: "The prisons are full of honorable cases of prisoners that are completing their bachelor’s and master’s degree studies"

Headline: "Abu Bakr: The prisoners’ will has overcome all of the occupation's steps to harm their determination and kill their aspirations"
      "Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners' Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr said that the prisoners' will has overcome all of the occupation's steps to harm their determination and kill their aspirations through the punitive laws that it imposes on them that include all areas of their lives, and primarily the struggle against the prisoners' studies. This is by placing obstacles, confiscating books and writing implements, and banning the completion of their studies and registering at universities. Abu Bakr said this during a ceremony in which he and Vice [President] for Academic Affairs at An-Najah National University Dr. Muhammad Al-Amla presented a law degree to the relatives of prisoner Azmi Naffa (i.e., terrorist, wounded 4) from the Jenin district. Naffa – who has been imprisoned since 2015, is sentenced to 20 years, and is now in the Gilboa Prison – completed his legal studies behind bars. Abu Bakr said that there are dozens and hundreds of prisoners and released prisoners who have defeated the occupation through their studies and receiving their university degrees, and today the prisons are full of honorable cases of prisoners that are completing their bachelor’s and master’s degree studies from within their rooms and cells in the dark prisons."
