On May 27, 2017 the Zionist regime announced that the 1,600 Palestinian prisoners, many of the young girls and boys, have stopped hunger strike on the 40th day. Sixty of the hunger strikers were moved to hospitals.
Both United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov, former Bulgarian FM and friend of Israel, and PLO spokesperson Xavier Abu Eid, a Chilean-born Catholic, have blessed the deal.
The strikers were not demanding their release or an independent Palestinian state but basic prisoners’ rights under international law such as against torture, sexual abuses, legal assistance and family visitation.
Israeli prisons hold some 7,000 Palestinians, including 300 minors. Some of the inmates are held under Tel Aviv’s policy of administrative detention, which enables confinement without charge.
Israel Prison Service spokeswoman Nicole Englander said the deal was reached after talks between the Zionist regime and the Palestinian Authority, run by double agent Mahmoud Abbas, and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
Judging by Zionist regime’s past record on fulfilling its promises, I doubt very much if Palestinian prisoners will ever be treated as human beings by the ZioNazi regime.
We live in a world of wolves. There is no international law, there is only the law of jungle. The strong eats the weak. If we are weak, we shall be eaten. If we are stronger, the world will respect us.
While supporting the Palestinian strikers, Nasrallah said: “Nothing else can be expected of Israel, the usurping, terrorist, occupying enemy. But look at the rest of the world. Look at the rest of the world. Where are the Arab regimes? Where are the Arab peoples? Where is the Union of Arab Countries? Where is the Organization of Islamic States, the Organization for Islamic Cooperation? Where is the world? Where is Europe? Where is the West? Where is the UN? Where’s the Security Council? All those who often gets angry at the most trivial stories that happen in this or that place of the world, where are they?”
