PA Minister Karake visits homes of two convicted murders

     “[Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa] Karake said that the Israeli government is responsible for the [hunger] striking [prisoners’] health and lives, especially following the transfer of prisoner Abdallah Al-Barghouti to a hospital in Afula (city in Northern Israel) as a result of his deteriorating health. Karake’s words were said during his visit to the families of prisoners Muhammad Al-Rimawi and Tamer Al-Rimawi in the village of Beit Rima in the Ramallah District. He also visited the family of prisoner Tamer Rasem Salim Al-Rimawi (32) who is serving three life sentences and who had been wounded before his arrest. (Tamer Al-Rimawi’s name is repeated here, apparently mistakenly. Ed.).”

Notes: Tamer Al-Rimawi – serving 3 life sentences for murdering an American-Israeli woman in 2002.
Muhammad Al-Rimawi – serving a life sentence for his role in the murder of Israeli minister Rehavam Zeevi “Ghandi” in 2001.
