Official PA TV News




Official PA TV newsreader: “In order to raise the prisoners’ voice and convey their suffering, the [PLO] Political and National Guidance Authority in cooperation with the [PA-funded] Prisoners’ Club and the [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs in Hebron organized an educational national program to instill familiarity with Palestine and the causes related to it in the next generation…


At the Al-Qadisiyyah High School for Girls in Halhoul, the female students organized an initiative named ‘Keys of the Homeland’ that directed the spotlight on the suffering of the prisoners in the occupation’s prisons.”


Al-Qadisiyyah High School for Girls Principal Nadia Abu Rayyan: “This generation is very aware of the prisoners’ cause. In other words, the female students had very high motivation and they are the ones who organized all these activities that you filmed. In other words, they have love in their hearts for the homeland and great concern for the prisoners’ cause, and especially regarding the causes that we are monitoring every day like the cause of Nasser Abu Hmeid (i.e., terrorist, responsible for the murder of 7 people) and the other prisoners who have health problems and long prison sentences. Almost every day we are active in the school and speak about the prisoners, in addition to how we named every single class after the prisoners’ names. And of course, these people are worthy of more than we are doing on the matter.”
