“Yesterday evening, Friday [July 16, 2021], at the [PA] presidential headquarters in Ramallah, [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas received released prisoner Al-Ghadanfar Abu Atwan (PMW was unable to determine the nature of his crimes -Ed.). The president praised Al-Ghadanfar’s legendary resolve against the injustice of the prison guards and his ability to defeat them with his uncompromising willpower and his unbending determination. The president said that this victory led to his release from the Israeli occupation’s prisons. The president emphasized that he is proud of Al-Ghadanfar, who constitutes an example for the Palestinian youth of which we are proud, because through his resolve and defiance of the prison guards he succeeded in again communicating the prisoners’ cause to the entire world.

The president emphasized that there will be no peace or stability in the region without the release of all the prisoners and the emptying of the prisons, and also that the prisoners’ cause will remain among the priorities.
