He conveyed greetings to the prisoners… [saying], 'The leadership, headed by the President, emphasizes that we will not abandon them until they return as free people, because our nation suffers from their tragedy, and their suffering pains all of us. This is a tax that we all have to pay.' … He emphasized that no peace agreement would be signed without all the prisoners returning to their homes… Minister of Prisoners' Affairs, Issa Karake, congratulated the prisoners on the launch of this satellite station, which will broadcast our prisoners to all the satellite stations in the world, conveying their resolve and their acts of heroism to all nations."
