PA Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh: "I demand that the Israeli occupation authorities release all of the prisoners, beginning with the sick, those with chronic illnesses, children, and women, in order to protect their health. We hold the occupation responsible for harm to any one of them, and call on the international authorities, the Red Cross, and the humanitarian institutions to visit the prisons, work for their release, and guarantee their health under these international and local conditions."
